Stephen Harper's motion to kill MarriageBill

The wording of Stephen Harper's motion that if passed on April 12, will kill the marriage bill.

“this House declines to give second reading to Bill C-38, An Act respecting certain aspects of legal capacity for marriage for civil purposes, since the principle of the Bill fails to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others and fails to recognize and extend to other civil unions established under the laws of a province the same rights, benefits and obligations as married persons.”.
The preceeding posting asks you to contact your MP and tell them you support the Marriage Bill. I just spoke to an MP that tells me their offices is being flooded with emails again from Christian and right wing social conservatives. We need to send our own. I have sent emails to all MP's as well as a seperate one to my own MP here in Kelowna.

Send this request out to all your contacts. We need thousands of us to respond. Each one sent will add to the numbers.

Thank you for taking the time to let your MP know you support Equal Marriage!
