Gay marriage wins

The week's news at a glance.

Toronto

Canada’s Supreme Court ruled this week that gay marriage did not violate the country’s constitution, clearing the way for legislators who want to make it legal nationwide. Gwendolyn Landolt of Real Women of Canada, a conservative group, said voters would throw liberals out of power if they went ahead with their plans. But polls say Canadians overwhelmingly support gay marriage. While 11 American states recently banned the same-sex unions, courts in six of Canada’s 10 provinces have ruled that outlawing gay marriage is unconstitutional. “It’s hard to believe,” said Toronto lawyer Douglas Elliott, “that just a river separates us from the United States.”
