MacKay's declaration comes a day after leadership rival Erin O'Toole confirmed he would march in future Pride parades, should he become leader.

After delivering a speech in Calgary for the official launch of his leadership campaign Monday, O'Toole said he would march in a Pride parade. The Durham MP was responding to an audience member's question at the time, according to the National Post.

"There are no albatrosses in my Conservative party," O'Toole said, an apparent reference to MacKay's post-election musing that social issues hung around Scheer's neck like a "stinking albatross" during the fall campaign. The reference to the large oceanic bird was a dig at an earlier comment made by MacKay about Scheer's election performance.
