Mr. Ron Stewart (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Supply and Services):

Madam Speaker, I rise very unhappy and very disturbed today mostly because the equality report stemmed from the Progressive Conservative Party. I am very deeply hurt by that fact and hope that Bill C-212 will never see the light of day in this House of Commons.
I cannot be genteel when discussing particularly the amendment in subparagraph (1) in which the Hon. Member for Burnaby (Mr. Robinson) tries to purport that there would be no special rights for gays. What a joke, Madam Speaker. That is exactly what gays want. Already the paragraph covers sex. This is not an amendment on sexual orientation. This is an amendment on sexual deviation. Homosexual is anti-biological. It is anti-medical, anti-biblical, and I quote: "Go ye forth and multiply". It is anti-family and it is anti-social. It is pro-deviate and it is absolutely disgusting to most Canadians.
