As the Conservative Party grapples with its future in the wake of Andrew Scheer's resignation, former party strategist Kory Teneycke says there's room for social conservatives among its supporters — but opposing same-sex marriage is off the table.

"If people get a whiff that you think that being a homosexual is sinful ... I think that is an opinion that is unacceptable in the mainstream of Canadian politics today. And I think that's a good thing," Teneycke told Cross Country Checkup.

When it comes to party member's perspectives on abortion, however, Teneycke said those with opposing views should still feel comfortable within the party.
