Canada thinking about gays it had put in prison just because they were gays ; it's about time as the Liberals and Conservatives should have done this many years ago ?

The Liberal government's recent decision to pardon men who were imprisoned simply because they were gay will make Canada the first country in the world to embrace such a policy.

But administrative obstacles could make Justin Trudeau's promise to offer those individual pardons next to impossible unless the government issues a blanket decree.

"Canada would be breaking new ground," said Douglas Elliott, a lawyer who has advocated for the LGBT community since the 1970s. "It would be fantastic to see Canada getting ahead of the pack, again."

Family members and gay-rights activists are celebrating the Prime Minister's decision to pardon Everett Klippert, the only Canadian to have been labelled a dangerous sexual offender because he was a homosexual. Mr. Trudeau decided to pardon Mr. Klippert after his office was apprised of the case last week by The Globe and Mail.

"It's just wonderful, it's a great idea, Donald Klippert, Everett's nephew, said on Sunday. Everett Klippert never sought out publicity after his release from prison, and declined to participate in parade marches or protests when gay-rights activists sought him out in later years.

"I think he'd be embarrassed by all the attention" his pardon is generating, Donald Klippert said. "On the other hand, I think he'd be very proud of the fact that his sacrifice, his time in prison, that something good came out of it."

Everett Klippert's imprisonment led to the decriminalization of homosexuality, and it is now expected to lead to the pardon of thousands of men who were also imprisoned.
