Gay couple married after ruling
Couple celebrates end of 20-year fight
Judges rewrite definition of marriage
Tracey TYLER and Tracy HUFFMAN Staff Reporters
Two gay men said "I do" yesterday, after Ontario's highest court said "they can."
Crown Attorney Michael LESHNER and his long-time partner Michael STARK were married by Mr. Justice John HAMILTON in a hastily arranged ceremony in the jury waiting room of a Toronto courthouse, as a crowd that included everyone from judges to janitors looked on.
Just hours before, the Ontario Court of Appeal rewrote the definition of marriage to include same-sex couples, saying denying gays and lesbians the ability to marry offends their dignity, discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation and violates their equality rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
A unanimous three-judge panel, made up of Chief Justice Roy McMURTRY and justices James MacPHERSON and Eileen GILLESE, then took the issue further than any other court in the world.
Gay and lesbian marriage became legal in Ontario, effective immediately.
"Michael LESHNER, will you please repeat after me," said HAMILTON, as he began the short, civil ceremony. "I do solemnly declare that I do not know of any lawful impediment why I may not be joined in matrimony to Michael Clifford STARK."
Both men repeated the declaration before pledging their vows.
"I Michael, take you Michael, to be my lawful wedded spouse," said LESHNER. "To have and to hold, from this day forward, whatever circumstances or experiences life may hold for us."
HAMILTON, an Ontario Superior Court judge, asked both men to place rings on each other's fingers, then made it official.
"By the power vested in me by the Marriage Act, I pronounce you Michael, and you Michael -- affectionately known as 'the Michaels' -- to be lawfully wedded spouses."
"You are now married," said HAMILTON, who later said it was "an honour" to perform the ceremony.
LESHNER, 55, and STARK, 45, kissed and popped champagne.
Speaking to reporters, LESHNER said he regards the court's judgment as, "Day One for millions of gays and lesbians around the world" and the culmination of a personal 20-year battle to end "legally sanctioned homophobia."
"I wanted to put a stake through that sucker," he said.
His 90-year-old mother, Ethel, who beamed and sang in her wheelchair, drew her satisfaction on a smaller scale.
"I feel wonderful, if he does. And I'm sure he does -- take a look at his face," she said.
"I can't 'rah, rah, rah.' I'm not the type of person to do that," she said. "I'm just happy my son is happy -- I know he's getting a nice guy."
While LESHNER and STARK are believed to be the first gay couple to wed after same-sex marriage became legal yesterday, they may not be the first gay Ontario couple to be legally married. That distinction appears to fall to two same-sex couples who were married in a double ceremony at Toronto's Metropolitan Community Church in January, 2001.
The appeal court ordered the province to register marriage certificates issued to those couples, Kevin BOURASSA and Joe VARNELL and Elaine and Anne VAUTOUR. The judges also ordered the clerk of the City of Toronto to issue marriage licences to LESHNER and STARK and six other couples whose licence applications were held in abeyance pending a ruling by the courts. The province and the city told the judges during a hearing in April that they would abide by whatever the appeal court decided.
Less clear is where the federal government stands.
Justice Minister Martin CAUCHON told reporters yesterday he believes Members of Parliament should have a say in the debate about same-sex marriage, but the government also sees where courts across the country are heading on the issue.
The British Columbia Court of Appeal and a Quebec Superior Court judge have also ruled the common law definition of marriage violates the Charter's equality provisions, but didn't go as far as Ontario in immediately extending marriage to same-sex couples, preferring instead to give Parliament until July, 2004 to change the law.
The Ontario Court of Appeal said there's no need to wait: Changing the definition of marriage, effective immediately, won't create any public harm.
Federal justice department spokesperson Dorette POLLARD said the government has until September 9 to decide whether to seek leave to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court of Canada.
In the meantime, the government does not have the option of seeking a court injunction to stop same-sex marriages from taking place, she said.
If a further appeal to the Supreme Court is in the cards, it could return to the Court of Appeal to ask for a stay of yesterday's ruling, effectively putting it in suspension, POLLARD said.
She was unable to say how that would affect same-sex marriages that have already taken place.
Opponents of same-sex marriage, however, had no difficulty expressing an opinion on yesterday's decision.
By reformulating the definition of marriage, the appeal court ignored "centuries of precedent" and rendered "ordinary Canadians' views irrelevant," said Derek ROGUSKY, a vice-president of Focus on the Family, whose interests were represented by The Association for Marriage and the Family in Ontario, an intervenor in the case.
In its decision yesterday, written not by one judge in particular but collectively as "the court," the appeal panel changed the definition of marriage from being "the voluntary union for life of one man and one woman," to "the voluntary union for life of two persons to the exclusion of all others."
A person's sense of dignity and self worth can only be enhanced by the recognition that society gives to marriage and denying people in same-sex relationships access to that most basic of institutions violates their dignity, the court said.
"The ability to marry, and to thereby participate in this fundamental societal institution, is something that most Canadians take for granted. Same-sex couples do not; they are denied access to this institution simply on the basis of their sexual orientation."
Preventing same-sex couples from marrying perpetuates the view that they are not capable of forming loving and lasting relationships and not worthy of the same respect and recognition as heterosexual couples, the court added.
It was ruling on an appeal from an Ontario Divisional Court decision last year. The Divisional Court said the common law definition of marriage as an exclusively heterosexual union was unconstitutional, but decided 2-1 to leave it up to Parliament to rewrite the law by July, 2004.
The dissenting judge in that case, Mr. Justice Harry LAFORME, who would have changed the definition immediately, attended yesterday's ceremony.
In its 60-page decision yesterday, the judges systematically disposed of Ottawa's arguments for preserving marriage as a heterosexual domain, saying they were filled with irrelevancies, stereotypes and "circular reasoning."
The government argued that marriage has always been understood as a special kind of monogamous institution that brings the sexes together for the purposes of procreating, raising children and companionship.
That isn't something that lawmakers dreamed up; it predates the law, the government said.
Who invented the concept of marriage doesn't matter, the court said; What does is how gays and lesbians fare under a legal regime that excludes them from the institution.
The government was avoiding the main issue by arguing that marriage "just is" heterosexual and benefits society as a whole, the court said.
"The couples are not seeking to abolish the institution of marriage," wrote the judges. "They are seeking access to it."

Will you Mayor-y me?
London's Anne Marie DECICCO and Tim BEST are planning to wed after a whirlwind romance.
By MARY- JANE EGAN, Free Press Reporter, Thurs., November 3, 2005
Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO cuddles with fiance Tim BEST, a London native now living in Dallas, Texas, yesterday after the couple announced plans to marry next year. BEST proposed Sunday during dinner in Port Stanley. (Morris LAMONT, The London Free Press)
London Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO dropped a bombshell -- but this one was purely personal -- at city hall yesterday: She's getting married.
Dressed in a red suit and flashing a glittering diamond and a broad smile, the 40-year-old, never-wed, two-term mayor invited reporters into her office to meet the man she plans to marry next year.
"We do have a date but we're finalizing it, so I don't want to jinx too much of that right now," DECICCO said as well-wishers arrived with congratulatory hugs and to view the diamond.
Tim BEST, 44, a London native now living in Dallas, Texas, and the owner of two Texas Junior B hockey teams, met DECICCO May 22 at a Memorial Cup hockey game at the John Labatt Centre.
The whirlwind romance that ensued -- kept carefully under wraps -- culminated Sunday when BEST proposed during a romantic fireside dinner at Port Stanley's Kettle Creek Inn.
Port Stanley was chosen for "sentimental reasons," DECICCO said, noting one of their first dates was a walk along the Lake Erie beach.
"Yes, he got down on one knee," DECICCO confirmed, prompting BEST to quip: "I slipped."
BEST, who plans to return to London in April after hockey season wraps up for his teams the Dallas Titans and Fort Worth Texans, said he will maintain ownership of the teams.
BEST said he will give up his role as general manager of Hockey Group LP to his coaches.
The two teams are ranked third and 19th in the U.S.
"I'll take a trip down (to Texas) once a month for a couple of days but as president of a company like that, it's very easy to monitor from up here," BEST said.
After the wedding, they plan to live in the London house DECICCO bought a year ago.
DECICCO, who plans to seek a third term as mayor next year, has already recruited BEST to co-chair one of her campaign teams.
"I feel like I've been blessed in so many ways in my life with a great family and great Friends and this is just an amazing job. But this completes my circle in a lot of ways," DECICCO said of the engagement.
"We definitely want to have a family and I'm really looking forward to that, but we've also talked about running (for election) again and Tim's 110 per cent behind that."
BEST and DECICCO went to the same high school, but he didn't know her then. He was in Grade 13 at Catholic Central high school when she was in Grade 9 there. He went to school with her brother, Dom, while DECICCO shared classes with BEST's sister.
It was after a Memorial Cup game BEST approached DECICCO for directions to an automated teller machine.
"I knew Anne Marie was the mayor, but it was dark and I didn't recognize her and she had all her (London) Knights stuff on and she was wearing this big badge, so I honestly thought she was working at the game," said BEST. " She gave me directions and, later, we were introduced in the Molson tent."
DECICCO has dated off and on, but said her last serious relationship was when she was in her 20s. She kept her relationship with BEST quiet until "I knew he was the right guy."
Since they met, he's made several trips to London and she, too, to Dallas.
BEST let slip they took a vacation together, but DECICCO made it clear that topic was off limits.
"I've always been really serious when it comes to relationships and, obviously, I have a very responsible job and you want to be sure that when someone becomes a part of your life that they understand it fully and this job is important not just for me but for the community," DECICCO said.
Early in their relationship, DECICCO said the couple began talking about the future.
"We have the same values and the same morals and we're both Catholic and there are a lot of things that bind us together and he really understands my job and he knows it's not 9 to 5 and he's going to be eating dinner by himself once in a while. But he doesn't have a traditional job, either, so we understand each other and are supportive -- and you know I'm a huge hockey fan."
BEST was married in 1982 at 21, a relationship that lasted only a year and a half and produced a son, Ryan, 22, who will be his father's best man.
Ryan coaches one of his dad's teams and DECICCO describes him as "just terrific -- he's my buddy."
BEST, who visited DECICCO's parents, Frank and Bettina, the night before he proposed to ask Frank for his daughter's hand, said both families have become close.
"I told her dad this can't happen without your blessing and he said he saw a lot of the same things in me as himself and he lived his life for Anne Marie and he could see I would do the same," said BEST.
"Our families are really emotional," DECICCO said. "Everyone's been crying at various times, my staff, my Friends, my family."
DECICCO, only the second London mayor in recent memory to wed in office -- Deputy Mayor Tom GOSNELL was the first -- said she believes marriage will make her happier and enhance her role as mayor.
"I think just about every other mayor that's been doing this job has been married, so it's not like I'm breaking new ground here.
"I spend a lot of time at events and now Tim will be there and that will be an enhancement to the things I do. This job has been the best experience I've ever had, but like everyone else, there are days when you just need someone to be there for you and I've seen that in the months we've been together and it's just going to be a bonus when he's actually living here and we're married."
BEST's parents are lifelong Londoners. His father, Ted, retired after 30 years as a blacksmith at GM Diesel and his mother, Carolyn, is a retired porter from London Health Sciences Centre. They own a four-hectare hobby farm on Dundas Street East.

Orlena LEE and Derek WONG -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, October 22, 2005, Page M6
Seven hours of French director François Truffaut's new wave films on Digital Video Disk -- including Derek WONG's favourite, The 400 Blows -- was the litmus test for Mr. WONG's third date with Orlena LEE. " It's tough for most people to swallow," he laughs. "I wanted to see how Orlena would take it."
It turned out to be reel love.
A native Montrealer, Ms. LEE made a career- and lifestyle-altering move to Toronto in May, 2004, as a senior consultant at Environics Communications. Tired of blind dates "with no chemistry," she had admonished her mother, "I don't want any more of these matchmaking things with another Chinese guy. It never works out."
But her mother, Eliza LEE, was undeterred. On a visit to Hong Kong, she learned from an aunt that a friend, Pun Kit Chik WONG, was seeking "a nice Chinese girl" for her son living in Toronto. An eligible, cosmopolitan Mr. WONG soon received a photo of Ms. LEE at her 1998 graduation. His initial reaction: "What am I going to do with a girl who looks so proper?"
Luckily, a few weeks later, Mr. WONG reconsidered and risked a call. "I thought, 'Everyone looks proper in a graduation photo, especially beside their mother.' "
In September, 2004, a leery but punctual Ms. LEE awaited a traffic-delayed Mr. WONG at the Bloor Street Diner. She scoured the area, frustrated because she had no idea what he looked like, just as he sprang from his car for their inauspicious lunch. "I did most of the talking," she recalls. "It's hard to make conversation with someone you don't know." Yet, later, when they strolled a University of Toronto book sale and chanced on a carillon concert at Soldiers' Tower, the resonant pealing of the bells fractured the ice.
"We started having fun and talked more," she recalls, and they discovered a shared passion for music. Ms. LEE had studied piano for 12 years and played competitively. Mr. WONG was trained in composition. "Derek loves the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and listens to classical Compact Disks in the car and at breakfast," she says. Their date drifted into Little Italy, used bookstores, and ended promisingly at the Drake Hotel, until he dropped her at home, saying he would call after a business trip. She then surmised he wasn't interested.
His surprise call two weeks later took them to the Royal Ontario Museum, where the architectural devotee studied the planned expansion on a free-admission Friday night. Mr. WONG's penchant for the design genius of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe "was one of the reasons I moved to Toronto," he jokes. "He designed the building I work in, the Toronto-Dominion Centre," says Mr. WONG, a mechanical engineer who works as a senior manager for a global accounting firm.
By the fourth date, they were serious.
"My mom said, 'Calm down, it may be over in a month. There are others in Toronto,' Ms. LEE says. But, she recalls, "it was like a fairy tale. At his Christmas office party, we went on the dance floor and had such a good time that I knew I couldn't live without Derek and had to dance with him the rest of my life."
Mr. WONG, 36, says the two share the same sensibility. "We are both neither Asian nor Western," he says. "It is not every day that you find someone at the same place in the social spectrum. We are both into books, the arts, and have a lot of fun together."
It was Valentine's Day, 2005, when Ms. LEE broached the subject of marriage, and at first blush the instant simplicity of City Hall appealed to the couple. However, by the time Mr. WONG showed up at her office wearing his best suit, bouquet in hand, and motioned toward Queen and Bay, she had already deferred to convention. "I had called my mom [and] said Derek was on the way and I was going to get married," she recalls. "She cried and said, 'We haven't even met him yet or his parents or his family.' " So he met her parents at Easter, and after a laudatory speech to them, he presented Ms. LEE with an engagement ring.
The urban couple eschewed the extremes of a stereotypical Chinese wedding -- "a restaurant with red and gold and 500 people we didn't know," Ms. LEE says -- and minimalist destination nuptials, opting instead for intimacy and individualism. At the Granite Club on August 9, about 100 guests, mostly international, perused captioned photos depicting the couple's life journey. Strains of a classical quartet echoed as officiant Allan C. LANE wed the couple. A traditional Chinese ceremony followed.
During dinner, flamenco dancers launched a Latin theme that continued throughout the evening. At the end of the night, guests were given copies of a Compact Disk titled, in Chinese, Double Happiness, containing a composition written by Mr. WONG with piano selections played by Ms. LEE.
Ms. LEE, 29, says marrying Mr. WONG was, fittingly, a family affair. "He and my mom chat regularly on the phone, and she calls him about her day. I love his parents. We go out together every weekend."

Couple's 40th anniversary a boon for Christmas Fund
Murray and Marg BYERS asked for something for others when they marked a milestone together
By Denis LANGLOIS, Thursday, November 09, 2006
Donations begin coming in early for The Sun Times-CFOS Christmas Fund broadcast.
The on-air fundraising drive, which raises thousands of dollars annually for a variety of local organizations and charities, is still about a month away. But some folks are wasting no time in donating to the cause.
Murray and Marg BYERS, who live near Tara, decided to ask for donations to the broadcast in lieu of gifts for their 40th wedding anniversary dance, held October 21 at the Arran-Tara Community Centre. "We didn't need anymore gifts," Marg BYERS said in a recent interview.
Instead, they wanted people to donate to a charity and after some brainstorming, they settled on the Christmas Fund.
The couple has donated to the fundraiser a few times over the years and BYERS said she's listened to it since she was little. The couple also wanted people to support a local cause.
Initially, $700 was donated by people who attended the dance. But more has trickled in, BYERS said. She said Bayshore Broadcasting general manager Ross KENTNER told her roughly $1,000 has been received so far.
"We had no idea it was going to be that much."
There's word that others have decided to ask for donations to the fund in lieu of gifts.
Each year, people sing, play music and entertain at the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound as part of the seven-hour broadcast. The holiday tradition will mark its 67th year when it hits the airwaves December 3. Last year, just over $20,000 was raised for a long list of charities.
The first $10,000 raised this year will be donated to Participation Lodge, with the next $2,000 going towards the Special Olympics. The remaining funds will be divided among 18 other organizations including Brucelea Haven, the Children's Aid Society, Salvation Army, firefighter toy drives, the Women's Centre Grey-Bruce, Beaver Valley Outreach and Saint_John Ambulance.
Admission to watch the broadcast at the Roxy Theatre is, as it long has been, 25 cents and a non-perishable food item for the Salvation Army food bank.

New start at finish
Man proposes after road race
By Denis LANGLOIS, Tuesday, August 07, 2007
Keith MALHOTRA proposed to his girlfriend twice Monday.
It's not that Jenna URBSHOTT had to think about how to answer, but after running 13 kilometres from Oliphant to Wiarton, she was too out of breath and exhausted to get out the response right away.
So MALHOTRA got down on one knee and asked again. The answer? Yes.
"I was definitely shocked," URBSHOTT said in an interview. "I definitely did not anticipate that at a race."
The couple was about the cross the finish line in Monday's Wiarton Shore-to-Shore Road Race when MALHOTRA pulled out a ring from the back of his shorts and asked his girlfriend of four-and-a-half years to marry him.
When she didn't answer right away, that's when he got down on one knee.
URBSHOTT said her fiance is a "spontaneous guy," but she still didn't see it coming that day.
"The trick is trying to work it out… to make it a surprise," MALHOTRA said.
He bought the ring in Toronto in mid-June but had been thinking about the marriage proposal for about a year. He decided to do it at the end of the race both because it's in her hometown of Wiarton and running is a passion for them.
The pair met in residence at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, starting out as Friends and eventually dating.
She graduated with a bachelor's degree in French and recently finished teacher's college.
He graduated with a bachelor of science degree in kinesiology and physical education. Both are currently working at Bruce Power.
URBSHOTT said she's been running competitively for about five years and MALHOTRA started about a year later. It was their third time running in the shore-to-shore race together.
Usually MALHOTRA runs a little ahead of URBSHOTT, but with the proposal planned, they crossed the finish line at the same time.
Race assistant director Gordon HEINRICH said the wedding proposal was the talk of the race afterwards.

Sheree M. LANTIN and Wai Michael TEMPLE -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, November 5, 2005, Page M4
On their second date, as a birthday treat, Michael TEMPLE ushered Sheree LANTIN through Loblaws with an invitation to select her favourite delicacies so he could demonstrate his culinary acumen.
Ms. LANTIN, a self-described foodie who has tried "almost every restaurant in Toronto," recalls feeling skeptical as she flung down the gauntlet, selecting exotics such as fiddleheads and seafood. "He thinks he can cook?" she remembers thinking. "Let's see."
With celerity, he whipped together a feast. "He didn't even flinch -- [he] cooked five-star calibre," she says. "I was astonished."
A reticent Mr. TEMPLE soon confessed to having once worked at the celebrated French restaurant Auberge Gavroche.
The couple had met days earlier, during the May long weekend of 2003, when a mutual friend extolled each to the other, and suggested they meet at a birthday celebration in a downtown lounge.
One of four girls checking their jackets caught Mr. TEMPLE's eye.
"I thought I would be the luckiest guy if that indeed was Sheree," he says, and was rewarded 45 agonizing minutes later when the two were introduced and his luck held. After a brief chat, Ms. LANTIN drifted away, but made a lasting impression. "I realized she was what I was looking for, and the other girls said, 'She thinks you're a doll.' "
"He had a really good sense of humour -- that's what got me in the beginning," Ms. LANTIN says. "We spent hours talking and just phased out the other people."
Mr. TEMPLE wasn't ready to have his dream date vanish into the night and escorted her home. "I didn't know what to say or do, so I offered him this huge bowl of chocolate ice cream," she recalls with a laugh. The invitation enabled him to linger, and reflect with every measured spoonful on the price we pay for love: Mr. TEMPLE is lactose-intolerant.
The following weekend, Mr. TEMPLE was in Tofino, British Columbia, as a member of a friend's bridal party, and succumbed to the pangs of separation. "He called me a million times a day and then put the phone to the ocean. Really cheesy stuff," Ms. LANTIN says.
His Friends cautioned, "You're going to scare her off. She's going to think you're psychotic." But, enthralled by the adulation and miffed when it dwindled, "I told his Friends to stop giving him advice," she laughs.
Their lives meshed quickly. Mr. TEMPLE, now 38, with a B.A. from Concordia University, is general manager of Temple and Temple Tours Inc., a travel agency founded by his twin brothers in 1988 and geared to curriculum-based student travel. Until recently, Ms. LANTIN, an honours science graduate from the University of Toronto, worked across the street from him as an account manager for BIMM Communications. (She now has a new career as a senior account supervisor with FCB Direct.) The duo was soon blissfully spending seven days a week together.
Unfortunately, the couple entered a difficult phase in February, 2004, when Mr. TEMPLE's father, Walter Michael TEMPLE, was afflicted with terminal cancer. At the same time, Ms. LANTIN became ill with a complex lower intestinal dysfunction that left her feverish, in pain and barely able to stand. Exasperated after a series of misdiagnoses, she researched her problem on the Internet, and with the help of a friend, gained access to an appropriate specialist. Just before her two operations corrected the problem, Mr. TEMPLE's father died.
"That spring was one of the most trying periods of my life," says Mr. TEMPLE, who lifted his father's languishing spirits when he declared his intention to marry Ms. LANTIN.
As she recovered, his care and compassion underscored their bond. "I knew he was absolutely the one during that most meaningful and bittersweet time. His loyalty and kindness were there from the beginning," she says.
Mr. TEMPLE's just-in-time plans for a Christmas engagement unravelled when he ended up snowbound in Atlanta on December 23 -- the day he planned to pick up the ring -- while returning from Costa Rica with a tour group. He won a reprieve, however, when his brother stepped into the breach, enabling Mr. TEMPLE to insert the ring box as scheduled into one of a pair of snow boots placed in a Louis Vuitton bag. "We don't exactly remember what was said," Mr. TEMPLE says. "We were sobbing with tears of joy."
On August 13 on the deck overlooking the fairway of the Rosedale Golf and Country Club, Dr. Antoine AOUAD led the ceremony before 130 formally attired guests. "We thought of [the reception] as a big dinner party," the bride says, and the revelry continued at their King Street neighbour's after-party until daybreak.
As for the domestic peal of, "What's for dinner, honey?" Mrs. TEMPLE, 33, admits, "Mike likes to cook dinner. He finds comfort in it, and has fun at Dominion or St. Lawrence Market."
