Marriage Run Expected by Same-Sex Couples

June 25, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Expecting a run on marriage licenses during its annual Gay Pride Week, the city of Toronto said it will extend hours at city hall for gay couples looking to take advantage of Canada's recently changed laws on marriage.

"We are anticipating higher demand than usual," said Brad Ross, a city spokesman. Marriage licenses will be available this weekend. The city began issuing marriage licenses to gay couples this month after an Ontario court set aside the heterosexual definition of marriage as unconstitutional.
