Jagdish Grewal, a local Punjabi media man in Mississauga, claimed in an op-ed piece that homosexuality was unnatural and gays can be cured into straight people, has been dumped by his party for his views. In his editorial titled “Is it wrong for a homosexual to become a normal person?” Grewal wrote that people become gay because of some “shock” in their childhood but it can be “corrected”.

TORONTO – The Stephen Harper Conservatives kicked out an Indo-Canadian candidate from Ontario over his “Gay Cure” comments but apparently all “racist” candidates are safe under Harper’s most racially divisive campaign.

Jagdish Grewal, a local Punjabi media man in Mississauga, claimed in an op-ed piece that homosexuality was unnatural and gays can be cured into straight people. He was quickly dumped by the Conservatives for his views.

Grewal, who was running for the Party from the Toronto suburban constituency of Mississauga-Malton, runs a newspaper called Punjabi Post, where he printed his offending editorial which called homosexuality “unnatural behaviour” and heterosexuals as “normal”.

In his editorial titled “Is it wrong for a homosexual to become a normal person?” Grewal wrote that people become gay because of some “shock” in their childhood but it can be “corrected”.

Dumping him, the Conservative Party said: “Mr. Grewal is no longer an official candidate for the Conservative Party.”

“These (Grewal’s) comments do not reflect the views of the Conservative Party of Canada. We believe that all Canadians — regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation — deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.”

Canada legalised homosexuality in 2004 and the Toronto Pride (gay) Parade is one of the biggest such event in the world.
