Jim (I don't want your vote) Watson; the mark of a good democratic politician is to accept or at the least, debate opposing views.

The mayor of Ottawa, jim (I don't want your vote if you don't agree with me) watson, seems to have forgotten he is supposed to represent "all" of the city, not just one group, with his flying of the rainbow flag at city hall, shows he has lost his perspective on been a politician in a Democratic society...
The rainbow flag represents one group of the Canadian family, the national flag represents all...and when someone did not agree with his views, he arrogantly tells them he does not want their votes....No explanation of his position just a totalitarian answer...."if you don't agree with us, we don't want you here?"...Bad decision on his part, he seems to forget, we don't live in a dictatorial society, yet.
There has been many false explanation of the Russian laws by some in the media and politicians who are looking for votes lately, the laws of Russia are perfectly clear, they are anti promotion laws, whether these are anti gay laws is debatable...it is perfectly legal to be gay in that country, you simply cannot promote them to children....and why is the gay lobby of the western world so adamant on teaching it to kids anyway.....and if  you don't agree with them, your a homophobe?...hey, I don't agree in teaching any sex ed to kids in schools, I have the position parents are best suited to decide when it is time to do so, does that make me a heterophobe?
The Russian laws are based on that countries views, and we have ours, it could be worse, there are more vicious anti gay laws in (oil rich) middle eastern, African countries, yet we hear nothing of those from the msm and politicians attacking Russia for personal gain.
Same-sex acts are illegal in 31 sub-Saharan countries. Actual enforcement varies widely and the punishment ranges from years in prison to the death penalty.
There are 84 countries that have anti gay laws if you were to include Russia, which does not have a law against homosexual acts.

We had the Governor of new york also, say if your a conservative we don't want you here, (which he smartly retracted), this is not the evolution of democracy, this is dictation, extreme divisional policies, "believe and do what we say", has no place in a democratic nation.

The thing we have to remember is, Russia is not and never will be Canada or any in the western world, we can't "dictate to them our way is better, when it isn't...
If these "politicians were honest", a mention of "worse places" in the world would come out of their mouths...but no...
In my opinion, if they "really cared" about the issue and it wasn't for a pat on the back, they would point out those "other places" more dangerous than Russia's anti promotion laws...

In any democratic nation you have opposing views, whether they be anti or pro feminists, abortion issue, and the gay rights, but when they "impose" their will, there could be a backlash, resentment...
Respecting others rights to live in peace,or express their opinions, pro or anti is part of democracy, freedom of speech; and watson has the perfect right to his opinion as we have the perfect right to vote for him or vote him out if we do not agree...
We can be anti feminist, against abortion, or against teaching any kind of sex ed in schools, but we do accept they have the perfect right to express their opinions, to live in peace. One of the gravest mistake is not to allow opposing views by name calling or any kind of violent acts, a true democratic nation promotes opposing views, it is the basis of it's existence....and politicians, msm, have the responsibility to promote both sides and to explain their stance, and we, the people, decide if it is something we can support and vote for...that is democracy.
