Honourable Mr. Justice Michel Robert, Chief Justice of Quebec, hears the intervention of the Canadian Human Rights Commission in the same sex marriage case in Montreal. The Federal Government opposes the intervention of the Human Rights Commission, arguing that the law does not empower the Human Rights Commission to have any say in human rights cases before the courts. Fortunately, Mr. Justice Robert did not agree with the Federal Government, and held that the Human Rights Commission should have a voice in the eventual decision about the legitimacy of same sex marriage.
