May 4 Toronto During debate in the Ontario Legislature on Life Together, the report of the OHRC, Ontario Liberal party leader Stuart Smith spoke in support of including sexual orientation in the Ontario Human Rights Code. Life Together's most controversial recommendation was that sexual orientation be added to the code. Several NDP members spoke in favour of the amendment, but the Conservative government's lone speaker, John Williams (PC–Oriole) rejected the recommendation in that it was not the government's job to be "legislating social behaviour and standards."
