Canadian Prime Minister Candidate Reopens Same-Sex Marriage Debate

Conservative Leader Stephen Harper reopened the hot-button issue of same-sex unions on his first day on the federal election trail Tuesday, saying he would hold a free vote on changing the definition of marriage if he becomes prime minister. Harper made the remark after Prime Minister Paul Martin announced Canadians will go to the polls on Jan. 23. Harper, who has long promised that if elected he would hold a free vote on marriage, raised the issue himself during a news conference Tuesday in Ottawa. Source: CBC News, cbc.ca.
