Polygamy, polyamory fail at B.C. Supreme Court

ADF-allied attorney participated in case to demonstrate harms of ‘group marriage’
to women, children, society

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The Supreme Court of British Columbia has ruled that the government of Canada may continue to prohibit polygamy and polyamory–a decision that rejects an approach that could have had far-reaching effects on marriage throughout Canada and other countries. An Alliance Defense Fund allied attorney participated in a multi-month trial that began in November of last year to examine the various harms of polygamy and polyamory to women, children, and society.
