STATEMENT BY JUSTICE MINISTER ROB NICHOLSON
OTTAWA, January 12, 2012 – The Honourable Rob Nicholson, P.C., Q.C., M.P. for Niagara Falls, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, made the following statement today:
"I want to be very clear that the Government has no intention of reopening the debate on the definition of marriage.
