Two Conservative strategists say both the party and leader Andrew Scheer need to modernize their approach to social issues if they want to convince more Canadians to vote for them.

In an opinion piece published by the Globe and Mail on Wednesday, long-time Conservative strategists Melissa Lantsman and Jamie Ellerton said Andrew Scheer's "visible discomfort" with issues like same sex marriage during the recent election campaign warrant serious introspection by the party.

"For the Conservative movement to grow, unequivocal support for LGBTQ people cannot be up for debate," they wrote.
