QUOTE: Should Anti-Equality Politicians Make “It Gets Better” Videos?

” I’ll just say this about Canada’s conservatives contribution to the “It Gets Better” Project: People who are in a position to make it better—elected officials—but who have chosen, over the years, to make it worse, can come around. It’s essential that they do. People who have advanced the cause of ignorance and bigotry and hate–people, like Vic Toews, people who have empowered the bullies–are welcome to see the error of their ways, to come around, to make amends and make it up. But it’s going to take more than a video to undo the damage done by Vic Toews and Canada’s conservatives. This was, quite literally, the least Vic and his fellow conservatives could do. The very least.”
