Lovely sentiment, Andy, but...
"Close" and "Free" sometimes don't quite mix
And what the halo is going on here!?
StarPhoenix: Scheer won't march in Pride parades this year, but Conservatives say they fight for gay rights in 'many ways'
In other words, Scheer doesn't have to talk about those issues; he's already done it, and now it can simply be done for him by good-living folks who claim that "Human Life is Precious" while oddly turning a blind eye to the deaths of innocent children and their parents in the Middle East and other US-led hot spots for which Canadian soldiers provide assistance, many of whom are the children of pro-life advocates.

CampaignLifeCoalition: Standing against threats to Life, Family & Faith
Campaign Life Coalition has given Scheer a green light rating for his riding.
Unfortunately, however, the VoteProLife gang has given Scheer a "C" rating.
Maybe because he's refusing to talk? That can't be good. But, never fear ...VoteProLife adds:
So a vote from Campaign Life Coalition overrides a vote from VoteProLife. Lucky for Scheer, because VPL's fave is Rod Taylor, who just happens to be the leader of a whole nother party: the Christian Heritage Party of Canada.
This guy behaves eerily like the Rod Taylor who starred in the 1963 movie "The Birds", who's actually quite dead now, but whose values apparently live on in the leader of the CHPC. The movie's Rod Taylor bravely and ever-so-manfully protects the lives of his mother, little sister and a potential sweetheart from flocks of deranged birds doing evil things that were clearly against the intention of their Maker, threatening everything that both Rod Taylors held/hold sacred.
See the CHPC Platform. It's cute how the Party avoids negatives while stressing the protection of women against themselves, and the bad ideas they could fall prey to:
Note how protective the Party's leader is of the lives of the elderly: even if his sick and/or aged mother actually begged to die, he wouldn't allow it. It would be un-"natural".
More succinctly, the Party is anti-abortion and against the Right to Die.
The Party would never outright say it's against the immigration of Muslim families fleeing from America's/Israel's wars; nor can they possibly be against "freedom of religion". They simply fear Sharia Law (although Jewish law -- Halakha -- is acceptable because God favours the Jewish people), and you never know when it could be foisted upon Canadian society by allowing the immigration of too many Muslims (many of whom, by the way, actually dispute Sharia themselves, just as many Jews do not follow Halakha).
In fact, Rod Taylor is against a number of thingsl -- The Birds being a good metaphor for all kinds of un-"natural" behaviours (sexual) and beliefs (Islam).
If he wins a seat in Parliament, he can keep a beady eye on Andy Scheer. No one should forget that the halo effect didn't protect Jesus, nor has it given a lasting advantage to Justin.
