Liberal candidate’s homophobic writing

Steven Del Duca dropped other candidates for homophobic remarks. Will he drop his candidate in Etobicoke Centre Noel Semple?

Today, it was revealed that Steven Del Duca’s Liberal candidate wrote a homophobic op-ed attacking 2SLGBTQIA+ students.

Semple wrote an op-ed against a proposed “LGBTOUT student fee” at the University of Toronto.

Semple said he thinks fears about homophobia on campus are “the old ‘homophobia’ bugbear.”

Semple said, “LGBTQ people, by contrast, are not a needy or victimized subset of society.”

Semple called the student levy a “cash grab” and asked “Why should LGBTOUT be allowed to skim money automatically from every student?”

Being an ally requires walking the walk, not just talking the talk: will Steven Del Duca’s Liberals stand up to bigotry against 2SLGBTQIA+ people and drop this candidate?
