Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced over the weekend that on November 28, the government will issue a formal apology to LGBTQ Canadians.
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: What you are looking at happening in Canada right now is exactly what you would be seeing had Crooked Hillary won the election and been able to continue Barack Obama’s “legacy” of destroying America. Canada is also paying reparations to the LGBTQP via a “financial settlement” to the gay mafia. Trudeau is following what Pope Francis has been advocating for quite some time now. Amazing how less than 3% of the global population can exert such power, isn’t it?
According to Canada’s Globe and Mail, the apology “is expected to be the most comprehensive ever offered by any national government for past persecution of sexual minorities.”
The apology is expected to focus on Canadians who were criminally charged or lost their jobs due to their sexual orientation. From the 1950s to the ’90s, the Canadian government carried out what critics call a “purge” in which officials identified government employees they suspected were gay, forced the employees to go through humiliating tests — including one called the “fruit machine” — and interrogations, and ultimately kicked allegedly gay officials out of their jobs, the Canadian Press reported.
“It’s amazing,” Martine Roy, one of the victims of the purge, told the Canadian Press. “Even though if you fight all your life for that it’s always hard to believe it will happen.”
Trudeau promised the apology a year ago after the LGBTQ group Egale Canada released a report on what the government could do to remedy its previous anti-LGBTQ actions. The government is also dealing with a lawsuit from thousands of people alleging they were persecuted due to their sexual orientation.
A financial settlement is also reportedly in the works, although the details of it are not yet public.
This isn’t the first formal apology Trudeau’s government has issued. As Lydia O’Connor reported for HuffPost, he also issued apologies for the government’s past treatment of indigenous peoples and the 1914 Komagata Maru incident, in which Canada denied entry to Sikh, Muslim, and Hindu people and forced them to go back to India, which was dangerous for the groups at the time. source
