    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has approved a dollar coin to celebrate the LGBT experience and commemorate the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada.

    The coin is already generating backlash, with opponents of the Trudeau government questioning whether the prime minister hasn’t done enough already to promote identity politics in Canada.

    According to CBC News, Trudeau gave his blessing to the coin on Dec. 14. The dollar coin, dubbed a “loonie” in Canada because a loon appears on one side of the coin, will be issued by the Royal Canadian Mint and be circulated throughout Canada as regular tender.

    The Mint isn’t releasing any images of the new coin, nor revealing the names of the artist who rendered it, claiming it wants to “maximize the impact” when people first see it sometime next year, according to CBC.

    Homosexuality was legalized in 1969 while Justin Trudeau’s father, Pierre Trudeau, was prime minister. The elder Trudeau had earlier declared as justice minister that “there’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.”

    Trudeau looks like jerk, walks like a jerk, acts like a jerk. He must be a jerk.

    Gays have always faced harsh discrimination, especially in the workplace ..

    "Whatever you do, don't hire the gay one!'
