Pattison saidWhy not march over the Canadian border, all at the same time, as claim asylum, and then you all can get married in Canada. I'm sure this would make it on the world news down here.
Canada will not give US gays political asylum for this purpose. It's been attempted before and failed. Aside from the questionable legality of it under Canadian law, Canada wouldn't dare risk a political rift with the US, its biggest trading partner.
I feel this all very sad, I truly do, and in so many ways it's why I try to be somewhat light hearted about it; not without saying I thought deeply enough about it, to sent my austarlian cash, to help this campaign pass.
I know in the past we had a homosexual couple, from a largely Muslim County, try to get to Oz illegally Via a sinking boat. When it come out that there was also two men on board claiming asylum for being a homosexual couple, the arms went up in the air, over it all: "as family's, women and children should come first"; whats equal about women coming before man, and when has a child not also suffered from the loss of a father too? Never did get to hear what was to ever become of them and their plight?
