The Liberals' controversial same-sex marriage legislation has passed final reading in the House of Commons, sailing through with a vote of 158 for and 133 against.
Supported by most members of the Liberals, the Bloc Quebecois and the NDP, the legislation passed easily, making Canada only the third country in the world, after the Netherlands and Belgium, to officially recognize same-sex unions.
I love you, Canada! <3
bjam1402: YAY! Now I can come and marry you!!1
agentmaly: But aren't you both under the legal age? I have no idea how Canada does it. Parental consent?
beautyid: Well if she has a big enough dowry (usually 15+ moose, 200+ LBS of ice, 30+ buckets of maple syrup, 3+ pinecones) they'll usually overlook it.
