So. Ottawa is now saying that non-Canadian same-sex couples who came to Canada to marry starting in 2004 are not legally married (see article inside). What are your thoughts?
As you may know, in 2004 Canada legalized same-sex marriage, which led to a ton of people flocking north (or east, or west, or whatever) in order to marry here.
Now, Stephen Harper is saying that, if the couple cannot be legally married where they live, they’re not legally married here in Canada either. Check out this article in today’s Toronto Star.
How do you feel about this? It makes me want to throw up. I’m actually so disgusted that I can’t quite articulate my feelings on the issue right now… So I’ll weigh in a little later when I can think straighter (Rimshot! Ha ha!) about it all. In the meantime, please share your thoughts.
