“We know people look to Canada to see the example. And we will continue to work hard to push the limits of what other countries do because we have to send the message that LGBTQ rights are human rights,” he said in French, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Trudeau’s Liberal Party recently introduced transgender rights legislation and reports last week said Ottawa will soon offer a formal apology to people in the LGBTQ community for past state-sponsored discrimination.

There was a moment of silence for the victims of the shooting in Orlando at the LGBTQ nightclub Pulse at the start of the parade, which included some 150 groups and 6,000 people.

Montreal will host the first ever Canada Pride event next year, reports the Montreal Gazette.
