Ottawa sets date for LGBTQ apology, but compensation not yet settled

Advocates for people criminally charged or fired from their government job simply because they were gay are celebrating news on November. 28, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will deliver a historic apology in the House for their mistreatment.

“I never thought I’d live to see the day,” said Douglas Elliott, the lawyer who led a class-action lawsuit on behalf of those who lost their jobs. Mr. Elliott has been advocating for the rights of sexual minorities since the 1970s.

Still no agreement on a financial compensation, even though the government has sent out invitations to people who were victims of the purge to come to Ottawa.
