I was right...more gay couples are tying the know...

As I said: Caterers get ready....
Gay couples across Canada are rushing to the altar, worried that a possible Conservative government will reverse the legalization of same sex marriages.

David Lockwood and Jason Cass got married Wednesday in Toronto.

"We decided Saturday night (to get married) Wednesday afternoon. The election is Monday. We wanted to do it before Monday," Cass said.

Conservative Leader Stephen Harper said at the beginning of the election campaign that he would allow a free vote on the issue if the Conservatives form the next government.

Pastor Mickey Wilson in Edmonton is scheduled to marry five same-sex couples in 10 days.

Toronto's city hall wedding co-ordinator, Louise Code, said there are 10 same-sex marriages booked for Friday.

"We've noticed a considerable surge in same-sex weddings that wish to be performed," she said.

So has Winnipeg wedding planning company Pride Bride.
As I said earlier, even if the Conservatives voted agaisnt same-sex marriage, they would still recognize currently-married couples. That would create three classes of 'marriages' - traditional, same-sex, and the new civil unions. Does anybody really think the Supreme Court would accept three different classes of marriage?

The SC already accepts two definitions of marriage. If things go the way they are going, I can see them accepting multiple definitions of marriage.

Stephen harper would create an additional two classes.

I was possibly mistaken that Common Law Partner and Marriage are essentially the same thing as it relates to legal protection.
