In the Canadian Navy, when a mission comes to an end there is a raffle. The winner of the raffle can invite their partner to their arrival site for the official "first kiss" of returning sailors. A crowd gathered at CFB Esquimalt in Victoria, B.C. burst into cheers after Master Seaman Francis Legare walked off HMCS Winnipeg and toward his waiting partner, Corey Vautour. It was the Canadian navy's first gay male "first kiss." Swoon! I love my country.
