I just had a thought; the City of Toronto is refusing to grant a marriage certificate to the gay couple that won the supreme court case, right?
Well, why is that? Then I realized; the Pope is in town. Mel's spin doctors don't want the Pope to come face to face with the first legal homosexual married couple in North America (I think they're the first, anyway).
So, I predict the city will back down once his large-hatted-ness has gone back home.
