Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized on behalf of the federal government for perpetrating decades of discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community. Trudeau issued the apology as dozens of people crammed into the House of Commons galleries to witness the historic occasion. (The apology was accompanied by a $145,000,000 settlement of a class-action lawsuit. The Trudeau government also introduced legislation to allow the criminal records of people convicted of consensual sexual activity with same-sex partners to be expunged.)
