MONCTON, New Brunswick, April 25, 2005 ( – Four same-sex couples who are challenging New Brunswick’s law prohibiting same-sex couples from “marrying” go to court today. The couples cite the potential federal election, which would mean the scrapping of currently tabled federal same-sex “marriage” legislation, as their motivation.

Homosexual partners Catherine Sidney and Bridget McGale from Saint John, and Wayne Harrison and Ross Leavitt will argue at the Court of Queen’s Bench in Moncton today that the federal definition of marriage as the union of a man and woman violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
