Canadians still saying yes

Canadians are still supporting same-sex marriage according to an extensive National poll conducted byEnvironics. More than half (54%) of Canadians believe that Parliament should pass such a law, while 43 percent believe it should not.

The poll follows much heated debate in Canada after the Supreme Court released it's opinion on proposed Legisaltion the federal government would put before Parliament in February this year

BC and Quebec were the most supportive of same-sex marriage, each at 60% for and 35/38 respectively, opposed. Alberta, was the most opposed reversing numbers from BC and Quebec, Saskatchewan and Manitoba were the slightly less negative than Alberta. 55% of those asked in Ontario said yes.

The poll further indicates that if you are under 60 years of age, 57 % support same-sex marriage. The numbers are even higher for those aged 18-29 where 68% said yes to proposed legislation.

A message to Canadian politicians, especially those from BC in the Conservative party. British Columbians support same-sex marriage and so should you!

Poll results are available on Environics website.

All I can say is thank God Harper didn't win the election as the combination of Bush and Harper running North America would have been too scary too imagine.
