Polyamory Week Guest Blog Post by Monica Meneghetti

“To be polyamorous is to drink an emotional power shake daily, blended and stirred by love of various stages of depth, challenge, and development. The vulnerability, the gratitude, the humility and awe of such nourishment have brought me to my knees more than once.” People say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, I believe it takes a community to raise a relationship. I didn’t realize this until

Jan 15th, 2020 | By

Polyamory Montreal, in a press release, said that in episode 24 of Zone Franche, a TV show on Télé-Québec, Canadian lawyer and television personality Anne-France Goldwater stated that polyamorous relationships are the equivalent of bigamy and polygamy, and therefore were criminal acts in terms of the law. The episode was broadcast on Jan 6, 2020. Goldwater’s comments are not true, of course, because on November 23, 2011, British Columbia’s Supreme

Polyamory Day

Nov 20th, 2019 | By

November 23rd is National Polyamory Day. On that day in 2011, BC’s Supreme Court ruled that Canada’s so called “anti-polygamy law” does not apply to unformalized polyamorous households – clarifying that polyamory, as it is typically practiced in Canada, is legal and not a criminal act. Prior to November, 23, 2011, it was questionable if polyamory was legal in Canada. If you agree that people who are polyamorous are entitled

Jour du polyamour

Nov 20th, 2019 | By

Le 23 novembre est la Journée du polyamour. À cette date en 2011, la Cour Suprême de la Colombie-Britannique a statué que la «loi anti-polygamie» du Canada ne s’applique pas aux ménages polyamoureux non structurés – précisant que le polyamour, tel quel est habituellement pratiqué au Canada, est légal et non criminel. Avant le 23 novembre 2011, il était douteux que la polyamour soit légal au Canada. Si vous êtes

Polyamorists and the Canadian Election

Sep 14th, 2019 | By

Voters across Canada are watching closely as our election campaign kicks off this week. We will listen to the promises made as far reaching and impossibly vague as they always are and we will watch with dismay as the push to discredit each other becomes a sad and desperate underscore to every commercial and public statement. We invite our political candidates to refrain from finger pointing and focus on proposing
