See Reuters for more details; via nominatissima, who has more thoughts. I’m feeling kind of teary and sick now, and I hope Stephen Harper’s government doesn’t really go down this road. Here in Australia, of course, going to Canada to get married has been reasonably popular, and just a few weeks ago the Australian government decided to distribute Certificates of Non-Impediment to Marriage (proof of not being married in Australia) to same-sex couples wishing to marry elsewhere. (I wrote an article about the CNI issue, among other LGBT-related things, last month.) So this is a real punch in the gut. I can’t even imagine how the couples learning about this today are going to feel.
