"The Yukon has become the fourth jurisdiction in the country to legalize gay marriages.

Justice Peter McIntyre ordered the Yukon government Wednesday to change its definition of marriage to, "the voluntary union for life of two persons, to the exclusion of all others".

A lawyer for the two men said his clients were discriminated against when the territory turned down their request for a marriage licence. "
