"The city tried to fight the rise last spring with a month-long poster campaign."

OOOO...Posters. I guess those few folk missed the posters. Wonder how many millions they are going to want to combat this scourge among the 280 victims who can't keep their swizzles clean?

Toronto's Hassle-Free Sexually Transmitted Disease clinic reported the campaign spurred more people to get tested -- nearly 3,400 people in 2003, compared to 250 the year before.

Well of course your infection rates are going to soar 800% when you have a 1360% percent increase in people getting tested.

"Nearly three-quarters of the cases were among men who have gay, unprotected sex, the report said."

This is the country that recognized gay marriages recently. Enough said!

The rate of syphilis infection has soared 800 percent in the past two years, prompting Toronto health officials to call for education and prevention funding.

They'll be passing out condoms in the schools?

Nearly three-quarters of the cases were among men who have gay, unprotected sex, the report said.

Perhaps encouraging the homosexual lifestyle and homosexual marriage isn't really a good idea.

If you really want to end AIDS and other life-taking STDs, then quarantine and reimpose and enforce sodomy laws.

Otherwise, no point in wasting money on half-measures.

Hmm, syphilis leads to blindness, insanity and death.

Will anyone notice if they have it? I guess the eyesight going would clue them in.

Anyone want on? or off? this list - ping me!

If people in Canada and the USA don't know by now how to prevent STD's, more money thrown at it won't help. What's it been now, 20 years, that TV ads, magazine articles, etc., have touted "Put a rubber on it and you won't get sick".

The federal government is responsible for the laws of marriage and divorce in Canada, while provinces control the solemnization and licensing of marriage.

The legal definition of marriage remains, in Canada, one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others. And God willing, will stay that way.

However, the Ontario and British Columbia Courts of Appeal have declared the common-law definition of marriage, as embodied in the federal Marriage Act, to be contrary to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

What we have is a queer (pardon the pun) legal situation, in which it is now legal in two provinces to issue marriage licences to homosexual couples, while they are not, in the eyes of the federal government, legally married.

The other provinces have not issued, nor will issue, marriage licences to homosexual couples.
