This week marked a decade since the first legal same-sex marriage took place in Canada. It occurred in Toronto just hours after Ontario’s court of appeal pronounced the Canadian law on traditional marriage unconstitutional on June 10th, 2003. And while Ontario was the first to legally recognize same-sex marriage, many other provinces soon followed.
Two years later, the federal government legalized same-sex marriage countrywide with the gender-neutral civil marriage act. Critics said “what’s next, legalized polyamory, where the state would be forced to recognize relationships with multiple partners?”
Who knows? It could happen. We’re joined in Toronto by Samantha Fraser, a life coach, author and an advocate for polyamory.
