OTTAWA, December 16, 2003 ( – The Globe and Mail, which bills itself as Canada’s national newspaper, has named the three activist judges of the Ontario Court of Appeal who mandated immediate access to marriage for homosexual couples, as “Nation Builders of the Year.”

The paper, said the ruling of Chief Justice Roy McMurtry and Justices Eileen Gillese and James MacPherson, “ruling was an example of the willingness of the nation’s judges to go with speed and precision where politicians only dither . . . the legalization of same-sex unions was the most concrete sign of the country’s determination to be a socially liberal place.”  See the Globe and Mail article:  See related LifeSite coverage:  The Activist Judges Behind the Ontario Homosexual ‘Marriage’ Ruling
