LGBTQ2 apology is a good start, but it’s not enough

The Conversation published an op-ed by John Paul Catungal, an instructor in critical race and ethnic studies at UBC’s Social Justice Institute, about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s planned formal apology on behalf of all Canadians to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people who have been persecuted because of their sexuality.

“The apology must be more than a mere symbolic gesture with little real impact,” Catungal wrote.
