When doctors refuse to provide reproductive health-care services based on personal beliefs, most people call it "conscientious objection." In reality, it is the opposite of conscientious.

Rainbow bombing, Western style: The spread of the anti-gay movement

International anti-gay groups have become stronger and more organized than international LGBTI human rights groups fighting for equality, so stated during the WorldPride Human Rights Conference in Toronto, June 25-27.

My reaction: Shock!

I came to the conference as a delegate representing the Conféderation des Syndicats Nationaux (CSN) trade Union from Montreal and as co-organizer of the LGBTI caucus for the People's Social Forum (PSF) taking place in Ottawa, August 21-24. Three days of workshops and plenary sessions changed my whole perspective on LGBTI rights and the frightful impact on our international communities.
