Good! Thank you, Canadians, for understanding equal rights


from the article:

The majority of Canadians are in favour of same-sex marriage.

Canada's Supreme Court has told the government it can legalise gay marriage without violating the constitution.

The move comes hours after New Zealand's parliament voted to recognise civil unions between gay couples.

Prime Minister Paul Martin said his Liberal government would bring in gay marriage legislation in the new year. He said MPs would be able to vote according to conscience, but cabinet ministers had to back the bill.

"I do not believe you can have two classes of citizens," he was quoted as saying by Reuters news agency.

EEK! Let's not give Bushie any ideas... he already thinks he's the leader of the world & that he has MANDATES to run us all however he wants! This guy's seriously delusional.

& Yay, regarding Britain! How funny that "the land of the free" is one of the least free nations. Thats not funny though, thats very sad.

Sad that we're not the leaders in freedom that we think we are any more.


I don't think we're the least free by any stretch, but we're not leading either, that's for sure.

I am so proud too. It makes us look cool.

Although I do understand the point of view of many of my friends who say "Marriage is an institution? I'm not ready to be institutionalized!" But having the right to choose is the point really isn't it.
I cannot for the life of me find ONE good reason why so many have spent so much time and energy trying to stop this from happening. Really, not one. Oh well, they lose.
I think this is one of those things the future humans will look back on and think " :LOL awww, they were so stupid, and quaint!".

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Congratulations!
