No Surprise From Canada

Canada embraces gay marriage—the government will not appeal last week’s judicial ruling, as expected. So far, Alberta has made clear it will not recognize the ruling, and has a constitutional backup to make their case why they should not have to. Will be interesting how this plays out, though I honestly do think it has moved in to stay in Canada, frankly making it all the more harder for her neighbor to the south to keep a man-woman definition of marriage in coming weeks and months. People might want to start thinking about debating the Federal Marriage Amendment. I’m not a big amendment fan in general, but, to preserve a non-Canadian legal definition of marriage, it is probably the way to go. And, it certainly is a debate that should be had, and right now; this is the moment.
