Bill C-38


First there was Belgium, then the Netherlands, and if all goes well, tonight there will be Canada.  These are the progressive nations that have legalized gay marriage.

Bill C-38, titled Law on Civil Marriage, is expected to clear the House tonight with support from most Liberals, the Bloc and the NDP.  When this is offical, I'll feel that Canadian sense of pride I communicated in this entry from two years ago.  Although same-sex marriages have been legal in Toronto for some time, making it the law from sea to sea is the right thing to do.  It's an equality issue and it's long overdue.

Harper can squak all he wants about his law being tainted because it required the support of the Bloc.  For starters, it's called democracy and all elected MPs have an equal vote.  Secondly, and this ties in with my Harper Hypocrisy entry from a couple of days ago, why the hell was it fine and dandy when Harper voted alongside the Blog to defeat the Liberals?  Suddenly the Bloc vote doesn't count?  What an idiot.

Go C-38, Go!
