Madam Speaker, I am not a solicitor or a lawyer so when it comes to the nuances of law I have some difficulty.
I do know that the two statements of the hon. gentleman across the way are true. They are accurate statements. From my own perspective I simply want to reaffirm the importance of marriage as an institution in Canada.
I am delighted to hear that the member opposite will be voting for the motion as will many of his colleagues across the way.
