Earlier this week a group of Conservative MPs and staffers released an anti-bullying video aimed at gay youth and the criticism has been swift.
In the video, MPs such as Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird and Public Safety Minister Vic Toews repeat the line "it gets better" in support of a campaign by the same name. It was started by blogger and columnist Dan Savage to let gay youth, especially those contemplating suicide, know there is support available if they're being bullied for their sexuality.
Many are calling the video hypocritical given the underwhelming support some MPs in the video have shown for LGBT rights initiatives. Toews for example has in the past been a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage and protecting sexual orientation under hate crime legislation.
