Pioneer of Full Equality, II

Following up on yesterday's post re Sullivan's stupid statement, June 10 was the 5 year anniversary of Halpern v. Ontario, which affirmed the 2001 trial court ruling permitting gay marriage. That legalized gay marriage in Canada, and effectively led to the federal government passing the same sex marriage bill. And given it was in Ontario, it opened up gay marriage to a far greater percentage of the population than California did.

And, for all Sullivan's "pioneer of equality" horseshit, Halpern came almost a year before the Massachusetts decision.
