Four weeks ago we launched our petition calling for the Government of BC to give Humanists equal standing with the many religious groups that are able to perform marriages in the province.
Since then, over 500 people joined our call!
On Thursday, we put those first 500 names in the mail to the Health Minister. We reiterated our simple call: Give Vital Statistics a definition of religion that includes Humanists.
We don't need a new law. We aren't looking to become marriage commissioners. We are simply asking to be treated the same as the many religious groups that already qualify under the law.
The Minister told CBC News when we launched the petition that he was open to the idea. Now we just need to make sure he follows through.
