  • Date is incorrect "The date of May 15th is one day after the bill (C-150) was passed (on May 14th) May 15 has no significance and is incorrect. May 14 was only the day it passed the house. For a bill to become law in Canada, it needs to receive Royal Assent, and C-150 received that on June 27th, 1969 and became the Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1968–69. The date should therefore be changed to June 27, 1969 as this is when the new law came into effect. You can find a copy of the CLAA, 1968-1969 here. https://anti-69.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/1969-Omnibus-Bill.pdf The website linked is not anti-gay, rather they challenge the idea that 1969 was not the total end of homophobic laws. In a way they are right. AO.consent for homosexuals was 7 years after the age for heterosexuals (which was 14 until 2008:and is now 16). Have a read of Anti-69’s FAQ - it’s insightful https://anti-69.ca/faq/ Thanks"
  • Date is incorrect "Homosexual intercourse was legalized on June 27th, 1969, as per the omnibus bill. However, other homosexual interactions were still illegal, such as public displays of affection, and homosexual acts involving or in the company of more than two people. Laws to that effect stayed on the books until 2019, but the last recorded arrest was in 1989. https://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/the-1969-amendment-and-the-de-criminalization-of-homosexuality https://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/we-demand"
