The Royal Canadian Mint unveils 'milestone' LGBTQ2 loonie, while protesters dispute the choice

The Royal Canadian Mint has unveiled a commemorative loonie meant to mark what it calls a key milestone for lesbian, gay, transgender, queer and two-spirited people. The agency says the new one-dollar coin pays tribute to Parliament's passing of legislation that "initiated the decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada." At a nearby event, historians and protesters discussed their objections to the coin.
