Every Country Needs Politicians Like Olivia Chow.

The fact that Canada is such a wonderful country is not an accident it is because of great politicians over the years who stand up for what is right – Trinity-Spadina MP, Olivia Chow is a fine example.

 

Member of Parliament Olivia Chow (Trinity-Spadina) speaks out in support of equal marriage and equal rights for all in Canada.

Chow speaks on December 6th, 2006 in the Canadian Parliament during a debate in the House of Commons.

Olivia Chow and the New Democratic Party (NDP) successfully defended equal marriage by helping to defeat the motion by Harper’s Conservatives, supported by some Liberals, to undermine the government’s decision in 2005 (Bill C-38) to recognize same-sex marriage–after provincial courts and the Supreme Court had recognized the right to equal marriage as well.

The next day, December 7, 2006, Harper’s motion was defeated 175-123–another victory for equality in Canada.
