"In the not to distant future, we will look back and wonder how this was an issue at all. We will be proud that Canada chose to continue its tradition of inclusion and respect for diversity and refused to turn back the clock on equality. And, hopefully, one day, the idea that someone would hide their sexual orientation or their gender identity will make no sense at all. We look forward to that day."

-- Laurie Arron of Canadians for Equal Marriage (CEM)

Arron was quoted after last Thursday's vote in the Canadian House of Commons reaffirming equal access to marriage for same-sex couples. When same-sex marriage was made Canadian law last year, the bill passed by a margin of 25 votes. But Thursday's vote saw that gap grow to 123-175.
