Quebec Justice Minister Kathleen Weil has announced the Canadian province will implement a comprehensive strategy against homophobia before the end of the year.
She broke the news at a May 17 rally marking the International Day Against Homophobia.
“We see it as a major step forward here since doing so, Quebec will acknowledge officially that homophobia – and not homosexuality – is a social problem and take action, instead of passively banning discrimination,” said Magazine Etre Editor Andre Gagnon.
“As far as I know, it will be the first government in the world to adopt such a strategy that will cover all its spheres of intervention,” he said.
