Military’s Former Gay Policy Could Cost Feds

by John McKiggan

Here’s a link to a story the CBC National news did about how the military’s former practice of hunting down and firing gay and lesbian members of the Armed Forces could expose Canada to a class action lawsuit.

I find it interesting (and more than a little disappointing) that there are very few comments condemning horrible way our military treated members of the Forces who simply wanted to serve their country.

What do you think?

Thank you Mr McKiggan for having an interest in this subject. I was in the RCAF and in 1962, seven of us lesbians were rounded up and after an inquiry which proved nothing, we were still forced to resign from the military. Others I know were just rounded up, discharged immediately and escorted off the base…. no inquiry.
