Few issues have dominated the Canadian political landscape like the legalization of same-sex marriage. As a political correspondent for the Canadian Press, Sylvian Larcoque has had a front row seat in the fight for gay rights in Canada. He recounts the story here on every level, from the legal decisions to the social impact to the political reactions. He analyzes the key court cases, parliamentary processes and election strategies, providing a behind-the-scenes account of how some of Canada?s most traditional standards and laws were changed. His narrative includes the last-ditch efforts of opponents to reverse the Liberal government?s decision in the 2006 federal election, and the subsequent Conservative victory. In exclusive interviews with couples, activists, lawyers, politicians, and ministers, Larocque explores the history of this divisive issue with depth and insight.
