Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada has made great strides in achieving equality for LGBTQ people but there's still work to be done. Trudeau was greeted with a standing ovation as he took to the stage at a Toronto hotel on Thursday night to accept an award from human rights group Egale Canada for his LGBTQ advocacy. As he reflected on his efforts to make amends for historic wrongs suffered by LGBTQ Canadians, the prime minister affirmed his commitment to remedying present-day discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation. "I am on your side," he told the crowd at the Egale Identity Gala. "I will fight for you, and I will fight with you."
