“We really want to see Canada lead in terms of equality,” said Tegan Quin in an interview with CBC News Network’s Power & Politics. “We’re seen as a beacon of hope for LGBTQ people around the world and I think it would be a very sad and terrible thing to see us roll back rights, and we’ve already done it.”
