The people have spoken…

…the doors are staying OPEN!

But the parliamentary debate on same sex marriage is now officially CLOSED. And the vote not to re-open it wasn’t even close! Even twelve Conservatives broke party ranks to vote against this absurd motion. The final tally? 175-123 against.

That means that this law permitting equal marriage rights stays on the books, and those right-wing Chicken Littles who oppose it will have to admit that the sky hasn’t fallen since it was passed, and is in no danger of doing so. (Guys, just suck it up already. Nobody’s making you marry someone of your own sex.)

Have I mentioned yet today how proud I am to be Canadian?
