Tories Reschedule Same Sex Marriage Vote?

Jo of The Canadian Way and I have been having an email discussion regarding the Conservative's plan to reschedule the same sex marriage vote promised by Mr. Harper for later in the parliamentary calendar. The story is discussed in this article in the Globe and Mail.

My feeling is that it may be Harper's way of taking on the "new kid on the block" by scheduling the debate just after the Liberal Party selects their new leader. Sounds like a move directly from the Karl Rove playbook of political dirty tricks.

Of course,by delaying it will also give the radical religious right the opportunity for a few more Sunday preachings against the homos . . .

Any thoughts?
