TORONTO, December 9, 2002 ( – A senior judge has approved a country-wide class action suit on behalf of self-styled homosexual “widows.” Ontario Superior Court Justice Maurice Cullity gave approval to one suit claiming to represent 2,000 people in British Columbia and another launched in Toronto representing 8,000 people from across the country.  The homosexuals claim the federal government owes them $400 million in Canada Pension Plan benefits from their deceased partners, retroactive to April 17, 1985, when the equality guarantees of Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms came into force.  For previous coverage see:  OTTAWA FAST TRACKS SAME-SEX “WIDOW” BENEFITS
