Gay Canucks pairing off, paring down stigma

by Jeremy Hooper

Canadian-FlagAccording to newly released Canadian census data, the number of same-sex couples in the nation rose 32.6% between 2001 and 2006 (from 34,200 to 45,300). And of those couples, 7,500 were reported to have formally tied the knot.

Our plan to take over the world seems to be working!

Shockingly, however, there was no mention of society being destroyed, children being corrupted, heterosexuals being assaulted, or the door to man-dog marriage being even slightly opened by legal gay marriage. Must have been an oversight.

Your thoughts

Again, I am proud to be Canadian.

It really is incomprehensible why there is such a huge dichotomy between Canada and the United States on this (and other) issues. We're really not all that different, in my opinion, and I just don't understand why so many Americans are so irrational and hateful when it comes to homosexual rights.

Can't wait to move back. In fact, I think that all gays should move to Canada, and then we can have our own country. We'll re-name it Gayada or some such. :)
