Quebec Government to Spend 7 Million to Fight Anti-Gay Bullying
Quebec government will spend $7 million over the next five years on programs aimed at fighting bullying and discrimination against gays and lesbians.
Justice minister Jean-Marc Fournier said money will be shared among agencies working to protect the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals and transgender people. The campaign will focus on demystifying gay people within the heterosexual community and ensuring they are treated fairly at school, work and society at large.
Robert Laramée of Fondation Émergence, hailed the initiative which he said will help non-profit groups work on behalf of LGBT people, young and old, throughout the province. “There is still an enormous amount of work to be done.”
Organizations have until Dec. 1 to apply for funding from the Bureau de lutte contre l’homophobie. For more information, visit the website at justice.gouv.qc.ca/homophobie
