Canadian Parliament may have voted to pass the controversial same-sex marriage bill, but the debate is far from over in many parts of Canada where people do not agree with the redefinition of marriage.
Alberta Premier Ralph Klein said Tuesday evening that his province might just get out of the marriage business and get rid of the provincial Marriage Act, leaving marriage to the churches. He spoke with reporters after the federal government passed bill C-38. He said his government would discuss the idea today.
During the last two years of debate on marriage, the Western province has consistently stated its opposition to the bill. It is one of only two provinces that do not recognize same-sex unions.
