Conservative leadership hopeful Richard Dècarie is under fire after he denounced gay marriage and asserted homosexuality is a “choice” on the Jan. 22 edition of CTV’s Power Play.

His comments have attracted national attention as he’s accused of holding views that are out of alignment not only with Canadians, but even with the party he wants to lead.

Numerous declared and prospective Conservative leadership candidates immediately denounced Dècarie’s comments:

True North is keeping track of who’s in and who’s out in the Conservative leadership campaign here

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
