Social conservatives say their voice is being ignored at Ontario Tory convention

Prominent social conservatives within Ontario’s Progressive Conservative party say their voices are being ignored at this weekend’s policy convention, once again exposing cracks in a coalition that helped propel the party to a massive election win earlier this year.

Jack Fonseca of the social conservative group Campaign Life Coalition and Tanya Granic Allen, a parental rights advocate and former Tory leadership candidate, have both expressed frustration that dozens of policy resolutions with a social conservative bent were blocked from being debated by party members at the event in Etobicoke, Ont.
