Here's a report from our national newspaper, The Globe and Mail: Peter MacKay weds rights activist, former beauty queen. His new wife was Miss World Canada and she is a human-rights activist. I don't like Mr. MacKay, or his Conservative government, but he has good taste in women! An excerpt from the story:
Defence Minister Peter MacKay and his activist girlfriend have tied the knot. [That means they got married.]
Friends told The Globe and Mail on Wednesday that Mr. MacKay, known for a series of highly publicized romances, and Nazanin Afshin-Jam, were married in Mexico.
On his website, Mr. MacKay said he was overjoyed to announce he and Ms. Afshin-Jam had married at a private ceremony surrounded by family and loved ones.
“Since coming into my life many of you have met Nazanin on her many visits to Nova Scotia. She is the most important person in my life and over the coming months, Nazanin and I look forward to spending more time at home in Central Nova and sharing our happiness with all of you,” the minister wrote. “Nazanin and I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2012.”
