O Canada! Our neighbor and superior country! In the land of free healthcare and newfound moral superiority (thanks Trump), Canadian Prime Minister and full-time love of our lives Justin Trudeau has announced that his government will offer a formal apology for the country's past discrimination against LGBTQ people.

According to a tweet from him, he'll apologize "for the persecution & injustices [LGBTQ people] have suffered" in an event at the House of Commons on November 28th. There is no confirmed reason for the apology, but many expect it will focus on the government's decades-long discrimination against LGBTQ service members and government employees. From the 1950s through 1992, government officials suspected of being gay were subject to interrogations and humiliation in order to have them fired from their government positions.

This is not the first apology Trudeau has issued. He previously gave a formal apology to the country's indigenous peoples. Meanwhile, we're stuck with a homophobic, transphobic bigot of a president who complains he should've left basketball players in jail when people don't personally thank him and has the intelligence of a kindergartner according to his own National Security Advisor. Cheers!
