There has been information on the case posted on the board at
Call for Intervenors in BC Court Reference on Polygomy and Group Marriages
along with some other background information...including I believe some information about how and why the law got on the books in the first place.

Laws can be written (or striken) without full acceptance...sometimes one has to show up in law first...and then society can follow suit. I'd suspect there's examples to be found in Civil Rights legislation and same sex marriage laws (and other places) in both the US and Canada where the process of acceptance was ongoing well after the laws came into force.
