Prime Minister Jean Chrétien announced that Ottawa will move toward legalizing same-sex marriages earlier in this decade, she said  “We will not be appealing the recent decision on the definition of marriage. Rather we will be proposing legislation that will protect the right of churches and religious organizations to sanctify marriage as they define it.”


“At same time we’ll ensure that our legislation includes a legally recognized same-sex couple.”


    “Homosexuals are equal members of society; entitled to the same rights as anyone else. Why, then, should they be denied the right to marry?”
The Globe and Mail, December 6, 2000


“Homosexuality is. Simple as that. And those who are gay and lesbian don’t deserve to be discriminated against just because they choose a same sex partner. What are us straights so afraid of?”
The Winnipeg Sun, columnist Laurie Mustard, January 21, 2001
