The two leading contenders for the Conservative leadership both swear they see social conservatives as an important part of their party's base. But while Erin O'Toole is explicitly courting their votes, Peter MacKay seems to have ticked off at least some of them.

"He basically said, 'Come on in and donate and give me your votes but then shut up,'" said Jack Fonseca, director of political operations for the anti-abortion group Campaign Life Coalition.

"That's a total turnoff. It does make us angry, of course."
