Canada to end ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ ban on gay military members

Canadian military leaders have been given an ultimatum to either accept the gay military ban or leave the country.

The government has been locked in a public battle with gay rights activists, who say the ban discriminates against gays and lesbians.

The Canadian Forces is also considering allowing the military to open to gay and lesbian recruits and provide some support services, including mental health services.
