Because using the Lord's Supper for politics isn't just for Americans anymore

Priest to deny communion to a Canadian MP over his support of same-sex marriage:
“I explained in the letter that he was scandalizing members of our faith community,” Fr. Lemire explained. “I asked him to reconsider his position” on the issue. Fr. Lemire explained that, after Mass the following weekend, Angus told him he would be back in the riding [district office?] in a couple of weeks, and would arrange a meeting then. Fr. Lemire never heard back from him, he said.

Wonder why the good Father's letter went unanswered?
