Canada to offer a formal apology to LGBT + Canadians

LGBT News

Nov. 28, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be apologizing for the history of discrimination by the Government of Canada against LGBT+ persons.
The apology will take place at Parliament Hill in the House of Commons, in Ottawa, ON (Algonquin Territory).
“For many of us the apology does not represent the end, but rather the beginning of the process of understanding a darker side of history,” The Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) stated in an email. “We hope the Government of Canada will not only fully apologize, but also expunge criminal records and release critical documentation.”
