Civil partnerships exceeding expectations

By johnboy 13 August 2008 41

One thing which should never surprise us is the capacity of the ACT Government to be surprised.

The ABC reports that while the Office of Regulatory Services planned for 15 ‘civil partnerships’ between gays and lesbians each year, they’ve had 23 already in the last three months.

Apparently they’re expecting another surge based around Floriade.

One would however, expect a surge of pent up demand, which may well plateau to the expected 15 a year.

UPDATE: Simon Corbell’s media release is now online.
