Someone parked a wagon near her constituency office in Petrolia, Ontario with a sign on it that read, “Hey Ellen, it’s Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.” MacKinnon said, “I think that it’s a very, very poor reflection on (a) beautiful community.” The bill was eventually defeated 68-59 on a free vote.
In 1992, she suffered a tragic loss when one of her daughter’s died due to cancer.
