Good! Thank you, Canadians, for understanding equal rights <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
from the article:<br><br>
The majority of Canadians are in favour of same-sex marriage.<br><br>
Canada's Supreme Court has told the government it can legalise gay marriage without violating the constitution.<br><br>
The move comes hours after New Zealand's parliament voted to recognise civil unions between gay couples.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
"I do not believe you can have two classes of citizens," he was quoted as saying by Reuters news agency.<br><br><br><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4082819.stm" target="_blank">http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4082819.stm</a>

Haha, I thought the title meant that America was permitting Canada to allow same sex marriage!<br><br>
Britian are bringing it in as well, hopefully by next Autumn.<br><a href="http://uk.gay.com/headlines/7144" target="_blank">Civil Partnerships</a><br><br>

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.<br><br>

Sad that we're not the leaders in freedom that we think we are any more.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I don't think we're the least free by any stretch, but we're not leading either, that's for sure.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I am so proud too. It makes us look cool. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
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.<br>
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.<br>
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!".
