With reference to the detail specified above, the issues pertaining to the prima facie discrimination by the Complainant for providing same-sex marriage services have been raised in this regard.
I believe that the Complainant has not discriminated against the same-sex couple on the basis of her religion. The issues raised in this regard are when a religious person is safeguarded against having to participate in the wedding of two gays or lesbians when her religious beliefs oppose such as a union.
What is the scope of Section 2(a) Fundamental Freedoms of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms which illustrates that everybody has the right to their fundamental freedoms. Freedom of conscience and religion is one of them.
It also raises the question pertaining to section 15 of the Charter of Rights and Freedom which prescribes the benefits in contradiction of the prima facie discernment afforded by the religious groups.
Up to what degree can a Court or a Human Rights Tribunal should inquire into the religious beliefs of the person?
With the help of Smith and Chymyshyn vs Knights of Columbus and others, it was explained by the Tribunal that the services provided by the Marriage Commissioner without undue hardship for her.
The Tribunal has accepted the fact that the core religious beliefs accept the truth that wedding is unification between a man and a woman, to the exclusion of others. So, the Tribunal finds no problem that the standard was implemented by the Complainant in honesty and good faith.
The Tribunal needs to balance the Charter Right of freedom of religion and equality along with the non-discriminating rights of the Respondents. It accepts that Section 2(a) of the Charter safeguards against the order which compels the people to act in a manner contradictory of their core religious beliefs.
The Tribunal further has emphasized the fact that on the basis of previous jurisdictional pronouncements, it is the core religious belief which attracts the greatest protection. The Tribunal has also accepted the fact that the Complainant could not allow a same-sex wedding as according to her it was an act contrary to her religious beliefs (Wilson, 2014).
The Tribunal has further added that some of the undue hardships on the part of the Complainants were justified but on the other hand it also believes that the Complainant was obliged to consider the arrangements to be made for their wedding.
She could have consulted the other marriage commissioners appointed in the same area for the purpose. The Complainant had to consider the fact that the impact of her decision would have on the rights of the respondents to access a public service.
So, the Tribunal balances the two competing rights prescribed by section 2 (a) Fundamental Freedom of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom and section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom. Section 2 states that every citizen has the basic freedoms and freedom of conscience and religion is one of them (Government of Canada, n.d.).
Section 2(a) states that the Charter guarantees that Canadians have the right to follow their religion. They are free to express their beliefs and thoughts in this regard. They also have the right to communicate their views to other people (Government of Canada, 2017).
Furthermore, section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom guarantees equality rights. As per this section, the rights include sexual equality. It has also been a basis for supporting rights of gays in Canada (Department of Justice, n.d.).
The Charter guarantees these rights to every natural person. So, the rights contesting in this behalf are freedom of equality and non-discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
As held in Obergefell v. Hodges these rights also require the courts to resolve the claims of the homosexuals so that they are given inclusion and respect in the society as well as the claims of the groups or individuals to be safeguarded against and protected from a changing norm in the society which overrules their religious perceptions.
Furthermore, section 8 of the Human Rights Code state that a person must not deny and differentiate a person or class of persons the accessibility to a service which is available for the public without a bona fide reason (BC Laws, 2018).
He /she must not discriminate against a class of persons on the basis of sexual orientation, the status of the family, gender identity etc.
Accordingly, I order as follows:
 The Tribunal has declared that Mary should be re-instated as a marriage commissioner in the same area in which she was appointed earlier.
 She should have the option to refer the same-sex couples to the other commissioner appointed in the same area for this purpose.
 The complainant has contradicted the provisions of section 8 of the Human Rights Code and section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom. So the Tribunal orders her to pay a sum of $ 500 to the respondents as compensation for the costs incurred by them in their wedding along with a compensation of $1000 to each of them for hurting their sentiments and integrity.
 The Tribunal has also crafted a remedy for to the above incidence based on its judgments. The complainant would have taken other steps such as meeting with the respondents and explaining them the situation and apologizing to them (Schilling, 2017).
 She would have offered them with the assistance to find another location or reimbursing them for any expense incurred by them in relation to their wedding.
