Oh, Canada! Or third time's the charm.

The Canadian Prime Minister is filing a bill to allow same-sex marriage. When this goes through, they will be the third country to give equal marriage rights to homosexuals (Belgium and The Netherlands are the others). Take that Vermont with your puny "Civil Union!"

Truth be told, though, I'm quite proud of my home state for even that tiny step of civil unions. In the US, with it's views on religion running to fundamentalist in nature (which is just fucked, western countries with a state religion give you more freedoms than we do), it will be a cold day in hell before all couples are recognized equally (yes, I'm looking at you Senator Santorium)
