SUPREME COURT RULES FOR SAME-SEX BENEFITS

OTTAWA, May 20 (Lifesitenews.com) – This morning the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in the MvH case that Ontario’s Family Law Act discriminates against practicing homosexual couples by not allowing them to receive spousal benefits. It ruled that because the homosexual couple may be in a long-term dependency relationship that they should be entitled to benefits under section 29 of the act since that section has already offered spousal benefits beyond married people to common law couples.
