Abooooooot marriage

Congratulations are in order to our neighbors to the north! Canada has passed legislation legalizing gay marriages, making it the fourth country to do so, behind the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain.

I am far too tired and hung over to provide any insight or analysis of this development. I will note, however, that I am interested to see how voters respond in the upcoming parliamentary elections. The strength of the religious right is certainly being tested; hopefully, the law will not be overturned.

In other news, I FINALLY saw someone reading the new Harry Potter on the metro this morning. I'm certainly surprised it's taken this long. Two years ago, I remember it being EVERYWHERE. Happy reading to those who've been waiting for it! (Dale)

Vancouver is quite possibly one of the sweetest cities of all time. Plus, easy access to Whistler? I think so!

What's Whistler? Ski Resort? I don't so much do the skiing as much as the ski instructors ;) Hot cocoa anyone :)

Yay for my homeland and Liberal power! And yes, Vancouver is money. Whistler is probably among the most beautiful ski resorts in the world, and I've skied many... Also, most of the employees around the ski lodge there are British or Australian, working on visas. Very hot!
