Live: Watch Canada legalize same sex marriage!

Webcast is here; a good backgrounder is here courtesy of the CBC.

SUMMARY
This enactment extends the legal capacity for marriage for civil purposes to same-sex couples in order to reflect values of tolerance, respect and equality, consistent with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It also makes consequential amendments to other Acts to ensure equal access for same-sex couples to the civil effects of marriage and divorce.

[I think they'll get there in a bit, anyhow... in the meantime, Judi Longfield can bite me.]
