In the article “3 Ways Gay Marriage Has Changed Canada” written by Diane Robertson lists the 3 ways that same sex marriage has changed Canada by looking at the parenting, speech and religious freedom aspects.
In the parenting aspect of this article, Diane speaks about how the laws surrounding parenthood and parental rights have immediately changed. She explains how children no longer have the right to their biological parents and how the biological parents don’t have the right to their children because of Bill C-38 which is the Bill that legalized gay marriage in Canada.
In the speech aspect of this article, Diane speaks about how hate speech has become a crime in the year of 2004. She defines hate speech as anyone disagreeing with homosexual behavior. She also talks about if someone had filed a “hate speech” complaint against a person then that person would have to pay a lot of money.
When she talks about the religious freedom she mentions that employers, business owners and all alike whether large, small, in home, or family owned do not have the freedom to deny any service to LGBT for religious reasons.
