With the start of the Sochi Olympics yesterday, the Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion (CIDI) recently released a promotional video for the Canadian Luge team in support of Gay rights.
This fun little video has gone viral across YouTube, Facebook and so forth. And it goes to show not only how supportive Canada is of both their athletes and gay rights, but also that they have a sense of humour too.
On July 20, 2005, Canada became the fourth country in the world, and the first country outside Europe, to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide with the enactment of the Civil Marriage Act which provided a gender-neutral marriage definition. (Source: Wikipedia)
This little video also makes me proud to be (partly) Canadian. Sure I may not live there any more, but whenever I see something like this it makes my heart swell with pride of my heritage.
Oh and I saw this morning that Canada has it’s first medal at the Sochi Olympics – a Bronze in Snowboarding. I’m personally not going to be watching the Games, but I always like to see how Canada (and the UK) are doing in the medal count.
