And just when you think they couldn't get dumber....
Well May is sure to catch the other parties unaware with this move, no doubt the NDP or the CPC failed to appreciate the groundswell of support for polygamy simmering away in the Canadian public……
I guess when the all the good high ground is taken, a molehill beats floating in the swamp.
The Green Party of Canada will consider a motion Sunday on whether or not they will push to decriminalize polygamy.
Party members in a workshop on Saturday evening voted to send the motion to the full-Party plenary, where they'll debate and vote on it.
Speakers in the workshop were careful to define polygamy as a marriage between multiple spouses. They made a clear distinction between polygamy between consenting adults and a polygamist sect in Bountiful, B.C., where domestic abuse has been alleged, though charges were thrown out in 2009.
“It's a human rights issue,” said Trey Capnerhurst, a Green Party candidate in Edmonton East, noting that she is polyamorous.
