Canada has often boasted giving the LGBT community more equal rights than many other countries in the world. Gay and Lesbian Canadians have the right to get married, serve in the military, adopt children, and live their lives in peace and harmony. This is the reason I have always been proud to be Canadian and to live in a country that is so LGBT-friendly.
Unfortunately, even though Canada has been advanced in the acceptance of its LGBT community, homophobia and discrimination still exist. During the last few months, I have asked myself, “Is Canada about to lose its LGBT-friendly reputation?”
During the most recent federal election, Canadians elected the Conservative party to be the Majority Government of Canada. By doing so, they may have set LGBT rights back several years. Unfortunately, the Conservative track record for supporting the LGBT community is non-existent. Thoroughout Canadian history, the Conservatives have never supported any legislation that furthered LGBT causes. The fact is, the party has always fought to have LGBT rights taken away.
