If Tom Lukiwsky is an A, then I'm proud to be B; I'd rather be B

REGINA -- About 60 people gathered in the parking lot of Conservative MP Tom Lukiwski's Regina office Tuesday to condemn comments he made about homosexuals more than 16 years ago.

"We're here to say that we demand better from our elected officials," said Nathan Markwart in a speech to the cheering crowd.


Lukiwski [is] the Tory MP for Regina-Lumsden-Lake Centre [since] 2004.

The groups at the rally called themselves the "B-Team."

"Tom Lukiwski said there are two classes of people -- there's A people and then there's B people. What we're saying is if an A person casts people out ... makes everyone else an outsider that isn't exactly like them and perpetuates prejudice, then we don't want to be A," Markwart said.

"In fact we're proud to be B. We'd rather be B."

A handful of people at the rally marched around the parking lot after speeches wrapped up chanting: "Hey, hey, ho, ho, homophobia has got to go."

Lukiwski's office in Ottawa said there would be no comment on the event. [...]
