June 28, 2005 - Same Sex Marriage Law Passes in the House of Commons

The House of Commons voted to adopt controversial legislation that will make Canada the third country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage.

The legislation applies to civic weddings at public places, like city halls and courthouses. No religious groups will be forced to sanctify same-sex marriages if they don't want to.
