Is it one of the province's or all of Canada that allows same-sex marriages?

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.

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.

The 1970s-themed ads featured attractive men in disco gear with the slogan Look what's back.

As long as it isn't leisure suits, I can go on....
