Anyone been following what happened at the CPC convention? There was a vote to redefine the definition of marriage and the side that wanted change won out. Maxime was part of that group. I am not against people who are LGBT but from learning from Ron and Rand, it's best that the conservative movement should steer towards getting government out of marriage. Also, in the long term culture war, basically we are ceding ground to the left by allowing them to segregate people even more. Facebook already showed us about 50 sexual orientations already so we know which direction the left is going.
To me, this vote seem more like a panic vote and hope the CBC SJW leftist machine doesn't call conservative homophobes, transphobes or whatever. I thought Maxime would take Rand's approach and I am disappointed he didn't do that. Hopefully, he'll clarify his stance soon.

Nonetheless, Kevin's going to present himself has a fiscal conservative/social liberal candidate and that might cut into Maxime's territory.
Here's an interview that Kevin did at the convention:
