Same-sex married couples rejoice
Ruling recognizes union of couples married in 2001; others rush to wed
By Estanislao OZIEWICZ Wednesday, June 11, 2003 - Page A4
Toronto -- For Kevin BOURASSA, 45, and Joe VARNELL, 33, becoming Canada's first same-sex married couple is bittersweet, even as advocates call their union a world first.
"Gee, I wish my mom could have seen this," Mr. VARNELL said. "Because of what the court did in Ontario today no mother will ever again not be able to dance at her son's wedding. That's a wonderful thing."
With his "lawfully wedded husband" at his side, Mr. VARNELL said they planned to celebrate by going home, popping a bottle of champagne and cuddling with their cat.
"If you forgive me, I never want to see any of you in my living room again," he said.
The pioneering couple, who were wed on January 14, 2001, and other same-sex couples seeking to be married in civil ceremonies were speaking at a news conference after a historic Ontario Court of Appeal ruling that they have a constitutional right to marriage.
"Canada gets the gold medal for same-sex marriage around the world," said Trent MORRIS, lawyer for the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto.
"I would like to congratulate them for being the first same-sex couple married not only in Canada but, as Mr. MORRIS indicated, the first same-sex couple in the world," said Cynthia PETERSON, lawyer for Equality for Gays And Lesbians Everywhere, a national advocacy organization for gays and lesbians.
The Netherlands became the first country in the world to legalize marriage for gays and lesbians on April 1, 2001. This year, Belgium became the second country to open marriage to same-sex couples. Unlike its northern neighbour, Belgium did not allow such couples to adopt children.
Mr. VARNELL, an e-commerce consultant, and Mr. BOURASSA, a former bank manager who is now a full-time advocate for marriage equality, were wed at the Metropolitan Community Church before the Dutch law was changed, using an ancient -- and legally valid -- Christian tradition of publication of banns, which amount to a notice of intent to marry. This allowed them to avoid having to get a marriage licence issued by the city.
The hitch, however, has been that whether a marriage in Ontario is preceded by civil licence or by banns, it has to be registered by the province's registrar-general.
Yesterday's court ruling not only ordered the City of Toronto to issue licences to same-sex couples but also told the province to register same-sex marriages. The city complied immediately, and by late yesterday morning had issued licences to several couples, including Ontario Crown attorney Michael LESHNER, 55, who a few hours later married his partner of two decades, Michael STARK, 45, in front of Mr. Justice John HAMILTON of the Ontario Superior Court.
"This is first and foremost a Canadian love story," said Mr. LESHNER, who has been a thorn in the side of the Ontario government for years.
"This is why people come to Canada, because they marvel at our values, and we've sent an unmistakable message that love can conquer all, the love of two good men can defeat everything.... It [homophobia] is dead legally as of today."
The joy and optimism of homosexual groups was tempered by the Ontario government's reluctance to embrace the ruling immediately without reservation.
Attorney-General Norman STERLING told the legislature that he was waiting to hear whether the federal government would appeal the decision to the Supreme Court. Although municipalities and provinces administer marriages, the federal government is responsible for defining marriage.
"We will, of course, follow what the court says in the decision and follow that to the letter of the law," Mr. STERLING said.
Among those celebrating yesterday were Joyce BARNETT and Alison KEMPER, who also picked up their marriage licences at Toronto City Hall and will marry in July, 2004. The women, both of whom are ordained in the Anglican Church, have been together since Their two children were delighted. "I knew that nobody could say I didn't have a family," said Robbie, 11, who was born to Ms. KEMPER. " Canada has finally figured out it's unfair to deny this to anybody."
His sister Hannah, 17, said she has grown up to find that she is heterosexual. She said she is indebted to her parents for bringing her up "where it's okay to be what you want to be."
The court ruling did not sit well with some religious organizations, including the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada.
Evangelical Fellowship of Canada president Bruce CELEMENGER said the court has fundamentally redefined marriage.
"It is not an appropriate use of the Charter to redefine pre-existing social, cultural and religious institutions," he said.

Bonnie MORTON and Charles SCOTT -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M6
For 15-year-olds Bonnie MORTON and Charles SCOTT, Canada's 1967 Centennial was the genesis of a relationship that would take four decades to reach its apex.
Ms. MORTON, a native Nova Scotian from the Annapolis Valley, was on her annual summer excursion with the family of her friend Linda Ogler, tenting on Prince Edward Island -- where the girls lingered one evening at famed Stanhope Beach. With his Friends, a tanned Adonis-like Mr. SCOTT breezed along "to check out the chicks," and the reserved fair-haired Ms. MORTON was agog. Her pluckier friend sauntered over and pitched to the redheaded Mr. SCOTT: "There's a cute little blonde who would like to meet you."
A summer romance flourished for the pair, until school beckoned in September. "Charley lived in Charlottetown, so a lot of late-night calls and letters, 10 and 20 pages," kept them in touch, Ms. MORTON recalls.
Over the next several years, however, distance and distractions intervened. In 1972, after both had graduated, Ms. MORTON decided to drive out in her first car to Prince Edward Island, where Mr. SCOTT was working, to reconnect with her "first love." She knew he might have a girlfriend, but continued undaunted. "The other girl's heart broke. I sort of left her standing there," Mr. SCOTT remembers. But following a two-week rendezvous the couple parted, apparently leaving their future behind them.
Meanwhile, Mr. SCOTT attended the University of Prince Edward Island and then the University of New Brunswick, found a job in the airline industry and relocated to Calgary, where in 1997 he earned an M.B.A. He was married, with daughters Jennifer and Christine, but eventually the marriage ended.
All the while, despite their separate lives, he insists Ms. MORTON was never out of his mind. "I'd be thinking about her. Where was she? Was she okay? What was she doing?"
For her part, Ms. MORTON who had remained in Nova Scotia, married, had a son Nathan and a daughter Michelle, and eventually also divorced. After which she ventured to Red Deer, where her daughter was working, and later, to Calgary, to "start my life over."
Fate intervened at the end of one work week in May, 2002. Intrigued by a barrage of classmates.com pop-ups, Mr. SCOTT risked e-mailing a Bonnie MORTON from Kings County Academy in Kentville, Nova Scotia, seemingly to no avail.
Ms. MORTON, who was without a home computer, was unable to view his e-mail until the following Monday at her office. Astounded, she burst into an adrenaline-spiked frenzy. "I screamed, ran around the office, and the girls asked what's wrong?" she recalls, laughing.
Her reply, with area code included, had an ecstatic Mr. SCOTT realizing that they lived on opposite sides of the same tiny hamlet of Spruce Meadows, and he sped to meet her that night. "I couldn't stop shaking, I was so excited to see him," Ms. MORTON says.
Affirming their commitment, they shared a Calgary condo until changes at his job forced a move to Toronto, where he is now a senior consultant for Oracle. Ms. MORTON tagged along and became office co-ordinator at Food for Tots.
In a Scottish pub in Markham, Ms. MORTON received a first engagement ring from her Prince Charley. Then, on May 6, with flourishes of the Scott tartan, the couple, both 54, were wed by Rev. Jean WARD in Prince Edward Island's Cornwall United Church, the bridegroom's family parish. Says the new Mrs. SCOTT, "We missed 30 years together. We treasure the time we have."

Annabel Jane GRIFFITHS and Timothy Stuart FITZSIMMONS -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, January 14, 2006, Page M4
While they were still just Friends, Annabel GRIFFITHS wrote in her diary about her affinity with Timothy FITZSIMMONS: " Time we spend together is like we are building a step in a staircase. One day we will complete the staircase, look at this world we have created together, and kiss."
The two met in 1995 at Ryerson's theatre school, but the next year their careers and lives took divergent paths. An English graduate from the University of Western Ontario, Ms. GRIFFITHS established herself as an actor, writer and certified yoga instructor. She co-wrote (along with Alison Lawrence and Mary-Francis Moore) a semi-autobiographical play, bittergirl, a sassy comedy about getting on after getting dumped. The three starred in its London, New York and Toronto hit runs. Mr. FITZSIMMONS, during this time, graduated in English from McGill University and pursued a master's in journalism at New York University.
The two exchanged perfunctory e-mail messages and phone calls, but sustained their Friendship with a Jane Austen-like exchange of letters, where they shared sentiments that tiptoed around romance. "We loved the way we could express ideas and talk about things going on in our lives," Ms. GRIFFITHS says.
Queried as to why he was so obsessed with Ms. GRIFFITHS by fellow student Yon MOTSKIN -- later his best man -- Mr. FITZSIMMONS admitted: "I think this is the girl I'm going to marry. I have to go and see Annabel."
Thus, on a Labour Day visit home in 2000, he arranged a dinner date, shifting their standard scenario from coffee to candlelight as he resolved to "put it all on the table and tell Annabel." Despite an enchanting evening, Mr. FITZSIMMONS was afraid unrequited love would jeopardize their Friendship. He abandoned his effort and, disconsolate, trundled off to visit his parents in Kitchener.
Speaking to her friend Jen COMISH, Ms. GRIFFITHS lamented: "He's going back to New York. It will be months before I see him, and am I always going to wonder?" Ms. COMISH -- her future maid of honour -- persuaded her to call him before he left Kitchener, and she cast her fate with a message.
"I met him at the bus stop. We were grinning from ear to ear, went for a drink, and had our first kiss," she says of their decisive moment.
That fall, Ms. GRIFFITHS visited Mr. FITZSIMMONS several times. They walked all of Manhattan, enjoying Central Park, the East Village and Broadway.
By 2001, he was back in Toronto working as a website writer and editor until he entered Osgoode Hall Law School the next year. By December, 2004, they had moved "from hesitation to certainty." So after requesting Ms. GRIFFITHS' hand from her parents with a written declaration of his love, he surprised her with a weekend at Niagara-on-the-Lake's Oban Inn.
Mr. FITZSIMMONS recounted fond memories of vacations there as they crunched past his grandparents' former home, to the lake, where he proposed. "I said, 'Of course, but will you marry me?' " she recalls, teary-eyed. "We put the ring on, jumped in the snow, hugged and held hands just as the sun was setting."
On October 9, the Pillar and Post welcomed her English family and his Scottish family to their rose garden wedding, where Rev. Derek RYMARCHUK officiated. Their gifts to one another reflected a Victorian sensibility: He offered a love letter and diamond necklace in exchange for an engraved pocket watch.
Today, Mr. FITZSIMMONS, 32, articles at Fraser Milner Casgrain, as the new Mrs. FITZSIMMONS, 34, who will retain her maiden name professionally, juggles her artistic career while directing OmZone, a yoga and wellness company. "It's almost as if our souls were circling one another and when the time was right we came together," she says.
