Between the 1950s and the 1990s, the Canadian government engaged in a systematic campaign to identify, harass, and purge lesbians, gay men, and those suspected of being gay from the Canadian Armed Forces and public service. This campaign and its severe, detrimental impact on lesbians and gay men in the Canadian military services forms the subject-matter of this proposed class action.
The plaintiff claims on behalf of themselves and on behalf of the following class:
All current or former employees of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Government of Canada or Federal Crown Agencies who were investigated, discharged, terminated, sanctioned or faced threat of sanction, by the Government of Canada because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, between June 27, 1969 and the present day.
