Prime Minister Trudeau to formally apologize to LGBT community for past wrongs

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will apologize to members of the LGBT community for actions the government took against thousands of workers in the Canadian military and public service in the Cold War era, a top gay MP said Wednesday.

The apology will be made before the end of the year, Alberta Liberal MP Randy Boissonnault told reporters, and will address a number of longstanding grievances.

“We’re going to work closely with members of all facets from the LGBTQ community to make sure that our apology is comprehensive and that it takes into account a broad range of the stories and the lived experience of Canadians,” said Boissonnault, who also serves as Trudeau’s LGBTQ2 advisor. CBC
