The World Needs More Canada

October 17, 2011

Reason infinity that the world needs more Canada:

From the Montreal Gazette:

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

    That is indeed good news.Here in Denmark we’re working on a new law that will allows people of other sexual orientation to be married in church.

      Gay marriage has been legal in Canada for several years…proud of the secular advances that Canada is making in it’s governance, despite having a “conservative” government. I look at the reference to religion that permiates US politics, particularlly the Republicans, and do not recall it ever being as fervent as it is now. The rest of the world is becoming more secular and rational, but the US seems to have a religious anchor holding them back….worrisome if the Republicans do form government.

    Hate to play devil’s advocate, but maybe the rest of Canada needs more Quebec first?
