I wouldn't be so quick to give the Conservatives (and not a few Liberals) credit. Since its inception in 2003 the Conservative party has been kicking and screaming about gay rights. in 2006 the Tories introduce a motion to re-open the debate on definition of marriage and they evern removed mention of gay rights in the "Discover Canada" booklet for new immigrants in 2009. This is more about optics than standing up for human rights.
