Canadian High Commissioner to Jamaica, Sylvain Fabi is urging Jamaicans to be on the right side of history by advancing inclusiveness towards the local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Speaking with The Sunday Gleaner following a courtesy call on the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry last week, Fabi, whose tour of duty began in September 2015, said that the Canadian Government continues to support human-rights activities in the island, including efforts of the LGBT community. "We are doing activities with the LGBT group here in Jamaica and these are issues we have raised from time to time, in our private conversations with the local government," said Fabi. He suggested that history will be the judge of Jamaica's stance on the LGBT issue, while calling for "inclusiveness, not just for sexual orientation, but of all races, gender and age."
