Justin Trudeau Will Formally Apologise For Past LGBTQ “Persecution And Injustices Suffered”

Justin Trudeau

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Twitter that his government will offer a formal apology for its past discrimination against LGBTQ2 (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or sometimes questioning two-spirited’) citizens.

This apology will be made to those who’ve been criminally charged or fired from government jobs or the military simply because of their sexuality.

From the 1950s until 1992, if the government suspected a person of being gay they were interrogated, put through humiliating tests to expose their sexual orientation and expelled from their Canadian government positions.
