Stephen Harper made the comment after media reports regarding a divorce case in Toronto.

The case involves two women, one from Florida, the other from Britain, who got married in Canada which legalized same-sex marriages in 2005.

A lawyer, representing Canada's federal government in the case, is arguing that the women's marriage in Canada is not valid because same-sex marriage isn't legal in either Florida or Britain.

Martha McCarthy is the Toronto lawyer who represents the two women.
