Gay Marriage Rights Upheld in Canada

Our current ruling party, the Conservatives, called for a vote to re-open the question of gay marriage with a view to restoring the 'traditional' meaning of 'marriage' and overturning the 2005 law recognizing the right of gay and lesbian couples to marry. Today, our House of Commons defeated the motion, and stood firm on their earlier decision.

Makes me proud to be Canadian!

Congratulations. I long for the day when, for the same reason, I can say I'm proud to be American.

Unfortunately, I'll probably have a long wait. :-(

Would that I could be equally proud on this issue to be an American.

Congratulations, Canadians.

Congratulations. Canada knows how to do it right. Hopefully the US will catch up one of these years. We can only hope.

Hi, I have completely randomly dropped in, but I share your fandoms and love your writing, so I would like to friend you, if you don't mind.

Yay Canada! Though the second vote was total BS and shouldn't have happened in the first place, -growls at Mr. Harper-
