TORONTO, Oct 20 (LSN) – The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and three of its Ottawa staff have challenged the Income Tax Act’s definition of spouse in the Ontario Court of Appeal. The Act defines a spouse as a heterosexual couple and thus the federal government need not dish out pensions to ‘partners’ of homosexuals.

A band of 13 homosexuality promoting groups including the National Action Committee on the Status of Women is backing the venture. The appeal will be heard at Osgoode Hall. The courts decision, without the accountability of elected representatives, may usurp the electorate by forcing a change to the Income Tax Act requiring pensions to be paid out to homosexual partners.
