Words are powerful but LGBTQ2 equality requires more than a Trudeau apology

For the government’s apology to have substance, it needs to be accompanied by meaningful reforms that continue to improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Canadians everywhere.

    The CBC is already hinting that part of Trudeau’s tearful apology, will include future efforts to promote homosexuality.

      CBC already does despite the rumours about the gay inuit who was crushed to death by over eager members of the Canadian Press Corps scrumming over his diversity. Seriously If we want true progressive diversity then its time to dust off coercion as a means to an end.
      If members of the gbltqwerty community won’t diversify the trades and other yucky straight white male jobs then its time to march them in at gunpoint if necessary.

        15 years or so ago a 6’4″ tall guy who dressed like a women dropped off a resume. I told them the only job i was hiring for was welders helper. He was looking for a job in the secretarial pool.

          Lol, bet that made your day.

            He could type way faster than anyone else we had and he had good references for his filling skills at the medical center he worked at previously. Our office was way closer than his current job so I understood the desire to not have to commute an hour each day.

            Plus if we had an opening in the secretarial department it would have likely cut down on the welders finding excuses to drop into the office area.

        I’ve never seen a garbage truck with a rainbow pennant.

    Excuse me but what “rights” do I enjoy as a heterosexual white person that the LGBTQ don’t have? They are looking for supremacy, not equality.

  • David Murrell

    Another boilerplate, pro-gay opinion piece from the Globe and Mail. The Globe first started its pro-gay, anti-family agenda under former editor William Thorsell:

    who, after leaving the Globe, came out of the closet as a homosexual. During Thorsell’s tenure, the left-wing newspaper published at least two articles supporting pedophilia, and supported a pedophile artist in trouble with the law out in BC (the particulars of the case escape me). After Thorsell left the Globe, the paper opposed the Harper government’s raising the age of sexual activity to 16 (the gay lobby and pedophiles wanted it kept at 14).

    I know several LG people, and as far as I can tell, they’re doing just fine.

    “…Brenda Cossman is a professor of law and director of the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto.”

    You’ve got to be fucking kidding. No fat to trim in the “system.” No siree. Running a lean tight ship over there.

    Perhaps the mosques could host some LGBTQ2 meaningfulness discussion groups.

  • Linda1000

    Ever since 2005, bitch, bitch, bitch. Sick of this group. Are they running out of letters yet? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ec39c4c135512ee6da30c5bbd3d1b3a7ebe07b49c5922ef77e9fa1c5bbea78aa.jpg

      Justin, where are the reparations to every LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP person in Canada? Surely each one must be worth as much as Omar Khadr?

      • Linda1000

        I think the money or cheque is being signed by Justine as I type.

        Ben Levin must be contemplating on what to do with his share!

  • moraywatson

    Only individuals can be equal with each other. Being a member of a group doesn’t make you equal with anything outside of your group, if that.

    • Alain

      Sorry but P. Trudeau changed all that with collectivism. Now it all about collective bogus rights. The independent individual no longer has standing.

    Mayor of London Sadiq Khan unveils plans for gender neutral public toilets.
    Are gender neutral wudu ablution facilities next?

  • Marius K

    Oh come on Blow and Fail ! Gays should be prosecuted for vandalizing women’s fashion.

  • I’ll say it again: sham marriage.

    • Clausewitz

      Cultural Appropriation at it’s finest.

      • Trudeau appropriated some credibility with his sham marriage.

  • Canadian Born

    He is writing out the cheques to gays as we speak!
