    (Toronto, Ontario) The first gay couple to be legally married in Canada has been refused entry into the United States.

    Kevin Bourassa and Joe Varnell (pictured) were turned back this morning at Toronto's Pearson International Airport by US Customs and Immigration officers when they attempted to board a flight to Georgia.

    US Customs and Immigration pre-check people traveling to the US at most major Canadian airports. They couple was rejected after filling out a form identifying themselves as a family.

    This pisses me off! Not just because I'm for same sex marriages but because I'm a Canadian. I think it's wrong that another country doesn't have the tolerance to accept another countries beliefs.

    I also thinks it fucked that we, in Canada, can't even get it together to be united on this.
