Prime Minister Paul Martin has lost a cabinet minister over the controversial same-sex marriage issue.
Joe Comuzzi, minister of state for northern Ontario's economic development, has told the prime minister he will resign.
Comuzzi will side against the federal government's same-sex marriage bill in a landmark vote later today.
The 71-year-old asked to meet with Martin and broke the news to the prime minister in his Parliament Hill office just hours before the vote.
