Clark is currently vice chair of the Global Leadership Foundation.
As an MP in Ottawa, he supported a private member's bill that attempted to restrict a women's right to choose. A decade ago, as a newly elected MP, he voted against same-sex marriage.

Rob Anders' successful, 17-year career personifies a sharp rebuke to the forces of conformity and hegemony. Anyone who values free thought and dissent within this country's stagnant political culture should find common cause in his plight.

I gather from all the media hype that Canadians are supposed to be waiting with bated breath and pounding heart for the "Second Coming" i.e. Justin Trudeau's non-announcement this week that he will enter the Liberal Party's leadership race.
