It's not often political leaders get together to support a common cause, but that's what happened in Montreal.
NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe marched yesterday with Mayor Denis Coderre in the city's Pride parade.
Mulcair said Conservative Leader Stephen Harper's conspicuous absence sent a bad signal, that the prime minister has no interest in eliminating discrimination.
Harper spent the day looking for votes in Ottawa, where he was hounded by questions from reporters about the expense scandal surrounding former Conservative senator Mike Duffy.
Harper ducked the questions, saying he won't comment publicly on facts being debated in court.
Duffy is on trial in Ottawa on 31 charges of fraud, bribery, and breach of trust.
Nigel Wright, Harper's former chief of staff, returns to the witness stand today for more cross-examination by Duffy's lawyer.
Mulcair said that come October 19th, Canadians will get the chance to fire Stephen Harper, whom he says is responsible for the Duffy scandal.
