On a Friday night
in June, constables Jason Tree and David Connors will
don their scarlet dress uniforms, stand before family,
friends, and coworkers, and be married in what will
apparently be the first same-sex marriage in Royal
Canadian Mounted Police history. In an interview in
their home on Wednesday, the men said they've had great
support from the national police force, the community,
and their families.
The pair, who've dated since their days at the
University of New Brunswick more than eight years ago,
will be married by a justice of the peace on June 30.
Each will write his own vows, and each will have a best man.
While the couple expects plenty of their fellow
officers to attend, they have not yet decided whether
they'll have their colleagues form an honor guard for
them. They plan to honeymoon in France and England. (Sirius
