Same-sex couples can marry in Nunavik
Last week, Quebec became the third province in Canada to permit same-sex couples to marry.
“This is a great day for Quebec and a great day for Canada,” said Bob Gallagher, the national coordinator for Canadians for Equal Marriage. “Now same-sex couples can marry in provinces that represent over 70 per cent of Canada’s population. The only question that remains is when all of Canada will benefit from equal marriage for same-sex couples.”
Quebec was the first province to outlaw discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in 1977. In 2002, the Quebec National Assembly unanimously passed a civil union and full parental rights bill for same-sex couples.
