The March For Marriage
Photos and comment by Tony Copple

April 9, Parliament Hill, Ottawa - People of all faiths took to the streets today in a 15,000 strong gesture to Paul Martin that Bill C-38 is an affront to civilization and the sanctity of marriage.

19 speakers including Stephen Harper, Archbishop Gervais, David Mainse, Jason Kenney MP, Liberal MP Pat O'Brien, Senator Anne Cools, Revs Dominic Tse and Tristan Emmanuel, Pierre Poilievre MP, and Stockwell Day MP. punched home the message that Bill C-38 will fracture our society, damage our children, and take away from us something that this mainly under-40 crowd clearly values as a seminal element in our lives: the uniqueness of marriage as between one man and one woman. Notably absent on the platform were representatives of the United Church and the Anglican Church. Powerful addresses were made by leaders of the Chinese church, Coptic Christian church and the Greek Orthodox church, as well as Jewish and Muslim leaders. Thank God for immigrant Christians.
