I accept your apology...

Can we please put the Lukiwski affair behind us? It was, after all, 16 years ago. One of the reasons why we now have gay marriage in Canada is that attitudes have changed dramatically over time. We've come a long way - in fact, I remember the police raiding the Trux bar in Montreal when I was still in University - back in 1978. So, imagine that - from raiding gay bars and baths in the late 70s and early 80s to gay marriage in just 20+ years.

Now, that's something to celebrate.

Lukiwski is now going to pay a huge price for his 16-year-old mutterings. And, he has apologized.


Next topic.

Thank you for this post.

I was wondering what you might say about this whole issue, and I respect your opinion as an individual who was clearly affected by it.

Trying to figure out if the Liberals, Bloc & NDP and the MSN will give this story "legs" as the MSN says...I'd accept his apology, and he seems sincere in his commitment to continue to set things right. A very responsible attitude, accepting responsibility, be accountable in the next election. One item that bothered me on the news yesterday was Mike Duffy, CTV, stating that he knows of more than half a dozen gay MP's who refuse to come out of the closet because of this kind of attitude in Canadian society. Why would anyone tell Mike Duffy they were closeted gay? Why is he keeping track?

I'm still waiting for the utterly corrupt and criminal Liberal Party of Canada to apologize for stealing uncounted millions of the taxpayer's money. I think that, more than some back-bencher's stupid comments of two decades merits castigation.

Just one more example of the utter moral bankruptcy of the left.

The man apologized. I think we're done here. Let's get back to the more recent and more egregious filth coming from the Liberals. I still wait for an apology for plain thievery.
