30 to 1 or 500 to 1, we dwarf Bountiful. Why is it about them?

Among those affected by the “polygamy law”, polyamorists are the ones with the numbers.

So who chose Bountiful to be the public face?

Most polyamorists don’t think of ourselves as “polygamous”, but the law does. The “polygamy law” says modern, secular, egalitarian conjugal polyamorists should go to prison.

For every polygynous family in Bountiful, Canada has dozens, maybe hundreds, of polyamorous families. At a minimum, there are about as many of us as there are Muslim polygynists… who also vastly outnumber Bountiful. We may outnumber even Muslims… by as much as 15 to 1. Invisibility hurts us… and it’s not deserved.

S.293 reference starts. We give you ALL the documents

Oral arguments are beginning. We’re celebrating the first live action in the reference case by opening up our internal archive of court documents. This includes practically every court document filed by every party to the case.

Here’s the Google Docs folder.

As far as we know, this is the only complete and unbiased collection of these documents available to the public, short of going down to the courthouse.
