The federal Liberals have unearthed a 2005 video in which Andrew Scheer, now running to be Canada's Conservative prime minister, rejects any form of gay marriage.

In so doing, he staked out a position that at the time was more to the right of even Stephen Harper's.

Let's look at the record. In the resurfaced video, Scheer says, "Two members of the same sex may use their God-given free will to engage in acts, to cohabit and to own property together.

"In that sense, they have many of the collateral features of marriage," Scheer explains, "but they do not have its inherent feature, as they cannot commit to the natural procreation of children. They cannot therefore be married."
