Raised in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec, Canada, Dominic Poliquin has studied in Montréal at Saint-Laurent College and completed a degree in Film Production at Concordia University. Contestant at the Course Montérégie-Est 2010, he won the award for best documentary with Huguette & Mumba. Two of his shorts circulated heavily on the queer film festival circuit.Based on the infamous heritage minute commercials broadcasted in Canada, these shorts celebrate the legalization of marriage between homosexual couples in canada. The first features a mountie proposing to his Quebec policeman boyfriend at the border between Quebec and Ontario. We see them kissing through a fence. A voiceover informs us that 2005 saw the possibility for same sex couples to marry. The lesbian version of this commercial features two nuns in the sixties that, after kissing one another, run away together to end up married as older women in 2005.
