Ontario court OK's same-sex marriage: "The city of Toronto issued North America's first full marriage licenses to homosexual couples yesterday, after an Ontario court knocked down Canada's legal definition of marriage, the union of a man and a woman, as a violation of the country's Charter of Rights and Freedoms."

Yet another reason to move to Canada, especially since our government is doing this: Justice Dept. Bans Event by Gay Staff. "The Justice Department has barred a group of employees from holding their annual gay pride event at the department's headquarters, the first time such an event has been blocked by any federal agency, gay rights leaders said today.

Justice Department officials told the group, called DOJ Pride, that it could not hold its annual event at the department because the White House had not formally recognized Gay Pride Month with a presidential proclamation, Marina Colby, a department policy analyst who is president of the group, said. The group represents several hundred gay and lesbian employees at the department."
