Quebec announces anti-homophobia policy

The provincial government is hailing it as a first in Canada and North America.

Friday morning Quebec's Justice Minister Kathleen Weil announced an official provincial policy against homophobia, with a wide-reaching series of measures to fight anti-gay discrimination.

They include recognizing the equality of sexual minorities, promoting the rights and wellness of the gay and lesbian community, and making the fight against homophobia a priority in public institutions.

However this policy is not an action plan, and does not contain any concrete steps for enforcement.

Weil announced that a ministerial committee will be formed by the end of January to deal with those issues.
