Scheer is scheduled to make an announcement this afternoon in Toronto after days of ducking the spotlight following the emergence of a 14-year-old video in which he lays forth his opposition to same-sex marriage.

The video was released by the Liberals last Friday along with a demand that Scheer explain himself and whether as prime minister he'd still deny LGBTQ couples the right to marry.

While Scheer's office hastened to put out that political fire with a statement saying he supports same-sex unions, calls have not abated for the party leader to address the issue in person and clarify his views.
