Right to Love - Le droit а l'amour sign now

(le franзais suit l'anglais)

If Canada is a more safe and tolerant society than others, it is because we have had leaders in the past who had the courage to do what was right. It is time for leadership now.

Gays in Canada continue to be significantly more likely to be victims of violent assault than any other group victimized by hate crime. Violent assault! The debate over their right to marry is clearly much more than a matter of semantics.

On this fundamental issue of human rights, human compassion, and the ability to make a historical stride in this last remaining area of unapologetic marginalization of our fellow citizens, the voices of Canada's young people MUST NOT be shut out of this debate.

Please join me in sending a message to our government and our neighbours that the Canada we want for our future is a Canada that supports and celebrates the love and compassion that Canadians have for each other. ALL Canadians. All of us.

PETITION STATEMENT:

WHEREAS campaigns reinforcing the fears about changing the definition of marriage are driven by and perpetuate profound hatred for homosexuals in Canada in a way that exacerbates their already unacceptable marginalization and victimization in Canadian society,

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, urge the Government of Canada to take leadership and send a clear message to all Canadians that Canada is a country first and foremost of caring, compassionate and fair people, and the State will not discriminate in its recognition of loving and committed relationships between two adults.

(French version...)

Si le Canada est, en gйnйral, si sйcuritaire et tolйrant, c'est grвce au leadership de nos dirigeants d'autrefois qui ont su faire montre de courage et prendre les dйcisions que leur imposait leur conscience. Nous avons besoin de ce leadership aujourd'hui.

De tous les groupes visйs par les crimes haineux au Canada, les gais demeurent les plus susceptibles d'кtre victime d'un acte violent. VIOLENT! Le dйbat sur leur droit de se marier est йvidemment plus qu'une simple question de semantique.

Sur les enjeux fondamentaux que sont les droits de la personne, la compassion humaine et la bataille contre la marginalisation inexcusable de nos concitoyens, il existe prйsentement une opportunitй de faire des foulйes aux proportions historiques, et la voix des jeunes NE DOIT PAS кtre exclue du dйbat.

Joignez-vous а moi afin de lancer un message clair а notre gouvernement et а nos concitoyens que ce que nous voulons c'est un Canada qui appuie et cйlиbre l'amour et la compassion qu'ont les Canadiens les uns pour les autres. Pour TOUS les Canadiens. Pour nous tous.

DЙCLARATION :

ATTENDU QUE les campagnes visant а renforcer les craintes au sujet des modifications proposйes а la dйfinition du mariage sont guidйes par et perpйtuent la haine envers les homosexuels au Canada, et exacerbent leur marginalisation et leur victimisation inacceptable dans la sociйtй canadienne,

NOUS, LES SOUSSIGNЙS, demandons avec instance au Gouvernement du Canada de faire la preuve de son leadership et de lancer un message clair aux Canadiennes et aux Canadiens que le Canada est un pays de compassion et de justice, et que l'Йtat reconnaоtra de faзon non-discriminatoire les relations amoureuses et dйvouйes entre deux adultes.
