Now Comes the Easy Part

The same-sex marriage bill passed its final reading in the House of Commons yesterday. After it is approved by the Senate (a rubber-stamping, honorary, appointed body) and receives Royal Assent (also not an issue), Canada will be the third country in the world to allow same-sex marriages.

Of course, Stephen Harper is promising to revisit the law if his party forms the next government (which isn't unlikely). So allow me to point out to him Paul Martin's comment on the whole thing: "The vote is about the Charter of Rights. We're a nation of minorities and in a nation of minorities you don't cherry-pick rights."
