OTTAWA, October 22, 2001 ( – A pro-homosexual marriage book published today has among its 47 contributors Canadian Supreme Court Justice Claire L’Heureux-Dub{197}{189}. “Legal Recognition of Same-Sex Partnerships: A Study of National, European and International Law”, edited by Robert Wintemute is based on a homosexual marriage conference held at King’s College London in July 1999.

LifeSite reported that in Oct. 1999 L’Heureux-Dube addressed a conference on same-sex benefits at Queen’s University in Kingston. “In failing to recognize and support partnerships, traditional and otherwise, are we not doing violence to the fabric of our community?” asked L’Heureux-Dube in her keynote speech. Commentators have repeatedly asked if the justice, who swore an oath of office to uphold the principle of judicial impartiality should not excuse herself from judgments regarding homosexuality given her self-exposed bias.
