(Montreal, Quebec) Quebec's highest court Thursday joined Ontario and British Columbia in ruling that the federal government's definition of marriage is unconstitutional and that same-sex couples were entitled to marry.

The Court of Appeal upheld a lower-court ruling that the traditional definition of marriage is discriminatory and unjustified.  That ruling had been challenged by both the Federal government and an umbrella group of conservative churches.
