Like we didn’t see this coming…

The social conservatives in the Harper caucus (which is basically 95% of that caucus) get thrown a bone to assuage their restlessness over the government being seen as supporting the Toronto Pride Festival:

A gay and lesbian arts festival that was told it met all government criteria under a new tourism stimulus program learned today it was rejected for funding. The news arrived at Montreal’s Divers-Cite a few weeks after tension swept the Conservative caucus over funding for Toronto’s Pride week, and just days before the beginning of their event.

And this was weeks was after this group defended the Conservative government over how fairly they’d been treated with past funding. It was rather predictable they’d become the sacrificial lamb on the altar after the social conservatives in the Conservative caucus threw a hissy-fit.

    What a bunch of freakin’ bastards.

    That’s my only thought on the matter, and it’s the most charitable wording I can come up with.
