Under the headline Don't kiss off marriage the Globe and Mail is running an article on Statement on the Status of Marriage in Canada. It's an well done op-ed piece on why the goverment should not change the marriage laws as directed by the Ontario Courts, to allow for same-sex matrimony.

I think this is where the goverment has wanted to go for some time, but didn't have the guts to come out of the closet and say so. At least now their position is out in the open, where it should have been sometime ago. If elected officials won't deal with the hard issues, then the democratic system has little value.

- Peace
