2005 The Civil Marriage Act had its Second Reading with the bill committed on this day with a vote of 43-12.
It was later passed on July 19 and given Royal Assent on July 20, making Canada the fourth country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage.

Had a fantabulous time at the Eltham History Walk on Saturday, which included a brief walk through Edendale Farm and its history (which you can read a summary of HERE).
You may say hello to my not-so-little friend who tried to share his lurve through the electric fence.

 This is the homestead of Edendale Farm which is almost finished in the extensive restorations.

  1. Did you change something? I am only getting one page at a time and have to go to 'previous page' to see if I have missed any posts.
    Not a complaint just wondering.

    I'll page back as necessary to keep up to date because I am A FAN. ( cause I know you travel and take photos just for me ;-} )

  2. What an important day July 6 turns out to be!

    We're here, we're queer, and, well, Dad will just have to like it or lump it.
