Canada has updated its travel advisory to warn LGBTQ residents visiting the United States about local laws and policies that may “infringe on your human rights” amid a rise in legislation targeting gay and transgender people, adding Canada to a list of countries that warn visitors to America about gun laws, mass shooting events and hate crime regularity.
