Opponents of same sex marriage will converge in Canada's capital Saturday for a rally billed as the biggest in a decade. MPs, church leaders and ethnic representitives are lined up to speak to the thousands expected to gather on Parliament Hill. While more busloads will come in from Toronto and across Ontario, demonstraters from coast-to-coast will also make the trek.

London Liberal MP Pat O'Brien will be among the federal politticians speaking to the crowd. The mass demonstration takes place just three days before a critical vote a Conservitive motion to retain the traditional definition of marriage, and O'Bien expects the protest will have some influence on MPs.

"This has been a court-driven process, whichis wrong," he said. There needs to be the political will in this country to have the last word on this, andthat means the government... should be stepping up and defining marriage laws as the union between a man and a woman."

I see this as a great way to show that most in this country are against same-sex marriage. The ruleing of the courts has been a contraversial one to say the least. There have been many small rallies across Canada over the last several months, but this will be the biggest to date. We can only hope that through this demonstration that our government will make the right choice and vote to throw down this court made ruleing.
