canada reconfirms commitment to same-sex marriage

I am a little behind in updating you on the story I mentioned a few days ago, on the lesbian couple who were married in Canada and live in the United States. They applied for a divorce in a Canadian court to be told that they could not get a divorce, since their marriage was not valid.

This set off a kerfuffle, with many accusing the Conservative government of attempting to undermine same-sex marriage rights. The government moved quickly to reconfirm its commitment to same-sex marriage rights, and made a statement that it intended to change those aspects of the law that did not recognize same-sex and/or foreign marriages.
