From the Paper:"For a long time there has been controversy in Canada over whether same-sex marriage should be allowed. Finally, in June of 2005, same-sex marriage was legalised by the federal government, led by the Liberal Party under Paul Martin. The controversial bill was called Bill C-38, and passed by 158 votes for, to 133 votes against. Since then, people still criticize the law. Stephen Harper has threatened to reconsider it. However, as Prime Minister Martin said at the time: "The vote is about the Charter of Rights. We're a nation of minorities and in a nation of minorities you don't cherry-pick rights." (CBC News)"
