Canada codifies same sex marriage

Why isn't this bigger news? Canada passed a law yesterday recognizing same sex marriages. It was a controversial and hard fought piece of legislation, bringing Canada in line behind only the Netherlands and Belgium in legalizing the unions. The passage was hotly contested by the Canadian equivalent of our own religious right zealots, who have been coaching their Northern brethren. The Canadian Conservatives are already threatening to take over the government in the next election round in order to revisit the law.

Not a whisper of it on the front page of either Google or Yahoo News. What do think that means?

FWIW - Google's lead story right now is today's Spanish legalisation of gay marriage. Still, it is strange that Canada didn't get much coverage.
