I can’t find the story the LP did where they said it cost the province about $200K in legal fees to fight the ruling on same-sex marriages and the role of the provincial marriage commissioner. But south of the border, it cost the United States government $200 million to maintain its Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy for its armed forces (Slog) instead of allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in uniform. And that’s not counting the cost of letting go valuable and talented troops, training them, and then training their replacements.
