One day after all Winnipeg Catholic parishes heard homilies on the need to protect marriage, as asked for by Archbishop James Weisgerber, a crowd of 3000 rallied at the Manitoba legislature to show their support for traditional marriage. Fifty supporters of homosexual ‘marriage’ were on hand yesterday to cast aspersions on the gathered crowd. Nuns in habit waved signs reading “Grant, O Lord, that Canada may see.”

In Vancouver a large demonstration of about 6,000 (organizers said 10,000 while CBC said 3000) gathered at the courthouse Saturday. The demonstration to protect marriage was organized by the Canadian Alliance for Social Justice and Family Values Association. Organizer K-John Cheung warned against the redefinition of marriage and the threat of hate crime Bill C-250.
