Apparently, Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney still doesn't much care for the faggots:
Gay rights section nixed for immigrants' guide
Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney blocked any reference to gay rights in a new study guide for immigrants applying for Canadian citizenship, the Canadian Press has learned.
Internal documents show an early draft of the guide contained sections noting that homosexuality was decriminalized in 1969; that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms forbids discrimination based on sexual orientation; and that same-sex marriage was legalized nationally in 2005.
But Kenney, who fought same-sex marriage when it was debated in Parliament, ordered those key sections removed when his office sent its comments to the department last June.
In Kenney's world, I'm sure homos are bad enough, but foreigner homos? Perhaps with dark skin? That must just give Kenney the late night sweats. And not in a good way, if you catch my drift.
AFTERSNARK: Curiously (or maybe not), it appears Canada's Blogging Tories are entirely missing in action on this story. Even Blogging Tory Fred "Gay and Right" Litwin can't seem to tear himself away from what must surely be foremost on the mind of every gay person in Canada these days: Israel.
Here's a suggestion, Fred: Change the name of your blog to something like "Gay and Don't Really Give a Shit About Any of That Gay Stuff." Maybe throw in the word "Israel" once or twice. Think of it as your first baby step towards accuracy. I mean, it's not like you have any interest in gay issues or anything, right?
