Trudeau Liberals pledge multimillion dollar fund to push homosexuality worldwide
OTTAWA, February 7, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government will spend $30 million over the next five years to push the homosexual and gender identity agenda in developing countries.
But that’s just the beginning.
After that, Canadians will fork over $10 million every year in perpetuity – or as long as the Liberals are in power – to advance the homosexual agenda as part of their country’s international aid.
Minister of International Development Marie-Claude Bibeau announced the fund Thursday in Ottawa along with openly homosexual Alberta MP Randy Boissonnault, Trudeau’s special adviser on LGBTQ2 issues.
“Globally, LGBTQ2 communities continue to face discrimination and injustice because of who they are. Everyone matters, no matter who they choose to love, no matter where they live,” Bibeau said.
According to a Global Affairs Canada press statement, the Liberals earmarked $30 million “in dedicated funding over five years, followed by $10 million per year to advance human rights and improve socio-economic outcomes for LGBTQ2 people in developing countries.”
Bibeau’s office confirmed the Liberals intend to keep the cash flowing indefinitely.
“There is no defined end date for this funding,” wrote a ministry spokesperson in an email to LifeSiteNews.
“It is included in Global Affairs Canada appropriations from the International Assistance Envelope on an ongoing basis.”
The non-stop multimillion dollar international homosexual promotion fund is intended to “further the aims of the Feminist International Assistance Policy,” according to a Global Affairs press advisory.
Adopted in June 2017, the Trudeau government’s FIAP has as a key goal the promotion of global legal abortion.
Indeed, the Liberals earmarked $650 million over three years in March 2017 to push abortion in the developing world, including funding campaigns to legalize abortion in countries where the unborn child is protected.
Campaign Life Coalition, Canada’s largest pro-life, pro-family group and the political arm of the pro-life movement, denounced Bibeau’s Thursday announcement as more of the same.
Funding the promotion of the LGBTQ agenda as part of international aid is another example of the Liberal government’s “ideological colonization” of nations it purports to help, says Campaign Life vice president Matthew Wojciechowski.
“Similar to their ongoing funding for abortion advocacy in countries where abortion remains illegal, the Trudeau government continues to waste Canadian tax dollars on aggressively targeting the deeply held beliefs on sexual morality and the traditional family of those living in the developing world,” he told LifeSiteNews in an email.
“It’s disturbing, and frankly unconscionable, that the Liberals are bent on pushing an unwanted ideology in countries where essential needs, such as clean water, maternal healthcare, and basic sanitation, are often lacking,” added Wojciechowski.
But the Liberal move is unsurprising given Trudeau’s non-stop advocacy, both substantially and symbolically, of the homosexual and transgender agenda at home.
The first Canadian prime minister to march in a homosexual Pride Parade, Trudeau most recently green-lighted the Royal Mint’s release of a new one-dollar coin designed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his father’s decriminalization of homosexuality. A petition to protest the coin has 37,344 signatures to date.
More substantially, the Liberals codified the unscientific gender identity theory in law in June 2017 with Bill C-16, which added “gender expression” and “gender identity” to Canada’s Human Rights Code and the Criminal Code’s hate crime section.
Critics warned that under Bill C-16, Canadians face jail time for disavowing gender ideology, and free-speech advocate Jordan Peterson rose to fame for arguing the bill will result in “compelled speech.”
Trudeau also anticipated Thursday’s announcement by declaring in November 2017 that Canada “will stand tall on the international stage as we proudly advocate for equal rights for LGBTQ2 communities around the world.”
That was during his tearful apology in the House of Commons for Canada’s alleged past mistreatment of LGBTQ persons, including apologizing to Canadians convicted under former laws against buggery, gross indecency, and running bawdy houses.
He vowed then to put “systems in place so these kinds of hateful practices are a thing of the past. Discrimination and oppression of LGBTQ2 Canadians will not be tolerated.”
The Liberals introduced a bill the same month to expunge and destroy criminal records of those “previously convicted of consensual sexual activity with same sex partners,” he said.
They also paid out a $145 million settlement on a class action lawsuit launched on behalf of LGBTQ persons fired from the civil service or discharged from the military because of their sexual orientation, a settlement described by media as “the largest of its kind in the world.”
Moreover, the Trudeau Liberals are actively pushing the LGBTQ agenda in the public service.
In February 2017, Canadians learned the Trudeau government is forcing public servants to take a pro-LGBT “gender equality” test, with unspecified consequences if they refused or failed to provide the appropriate “feminist” answers.
The Canadian military under Trudeau responded to Trump’s 2017 ban on transgender military members by declaring they actively recruit LGBT people.
