BC Liberal MLA Marvin Hunt is still running taxpayer-funded ads in an anti-LGBTQ magazine barely a week after his own party leader said it was "not acceptable" for BC Liberal MLAs to place ads in the publication.

Last week, PressProgress reported that more than one-third of all BC Liberal MLAs had billed taxpayers thousands of dollars for ads in Light Magazine, a Christian lifestyle publication that routinely publishes articles supporting conversion therapy and opposing LGBTQ and abortion rights.

BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson responded to PressProgress' original reporting by tweeting that his party would take "immediate steps" to review how it makes its advertising decisions.
