Former MP and committed pro-life supporter Roseanne Skoke is considering her political future after failing in her bid to become the next Premier of the Province of Nova Scotia.
In a July 12-13 leadership convention, Skoke finished well behind eventual winner Russell MacLellan. The margain of victory was nearly 3,000 votes.
Skoke, who recently won the Joseph P. Borowski Award for her pro-life commitment, faced an uphill battle from the start. A number of homosexual activists and other groups opposed to her traditional family platform, organized a vigoruous anti-Skoke campaign throughout the convention.
The action was similar to a March Liberal nomination meeting in Nova Scotia, during which gay activists and NDP supporters purchased temporary Liberal memberships with the express purpose of thwarting Skoke’s re-nomination chances.
