a leading example of the benefits of this equality for the past eight years. This

documentary is an in depth look at how same-sex marriage in Canada became a federal

law and what Canadians thought along the way. “I DO? (a documentary profiling

same-sex marriage as it becomes legalized in Canada)”- The controversy over

allowing the homosexual population to marry has sparked many debates in Canada and

around the world. On July 19th 2005 the Senate passed the equal marriage bill C-38 by

47 to 21. On July 20th at 4:56 p.m. the bill received Royal Assent and was proclaimed

into law at 6:09 p.m. Canadians can now marry in every jurisdiction. This documentary

explores the views of many gay people and their supporters, in the mission to discover

what it is exactly that the queer population thinks about same-sex marriage. As well as

to educate the general public about the issue from the opinions of the people who it

affects most. Having started filming before it was a federal law the film “I Do? shows

the progression of the events as they unfold and dares to go head on with a topic being

hushed in the media at the time. Featuring: Rev. Dr. Cheri Dinovo, Douglas Elliott, Rev,

Dr. Brent Hawkes, Marilyn Churley, Kevin Bourassa, Joe Varnell, Gail Donnelly,

Barbara McDowall, Susan Gapka & Mitchel Raphael.
