Marriage Politics In Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan's Attorney-General says he won't recommend appealing an Appeal Court ruling gnat says pretty much what courts have said in other provinces -- that marriage commissioners can't refuse to perform same-sex ceremonies. Since it is an election year and the ruling party does have a large conservative base, A-G Morgan says the government may still look at a central model, which is likely a way to underscore for Saskatchewan Party voters that the government has been dragged kicking and screaming to this conclusion, without taking any actual action that might anger the more centrist, urban members of the coalition.
