Canada Constructing $13 Million 'National 2SLGBTQI+ Monument' in Ottawa – EVOL

Canada is constructing the world’s first “national 2SLGBTQI+ monument,” and the proposed design is blurring the lines between real life and parody.

Construction began in downtown Ottawa on Wednesday, with activists, politicians, and “Indigenous elders” attending a ground-breaking ceremony to commemorate the structure, CBC reported.

The project will cost $13 million (CAD) from the LGBT Purge Fund, a nonprofit entrusted with nearly $24 million won from the Canadian government in a class action discrimination lawsuit.

Despite costing an enormous amount of money, the design shared by Liberal MP Seamus O’Regan Jr. fell short, according to many social media users.

“Canada will be home to the first national 2SLGBTQI+ monument in the world,” O’Regan wrote on X and included a picture of a … cylinder with gaping holes. 

“No, we won’t go back,” the MP added:

Canada will be home to the first national 2SLGBTQI+ monument in the world.

No, we won’t go back.

“The design of the monument centers around a sculpture shaped similar to a thunderhead cloud, meant to ’embody the strength, activism and hope’ of 2SLGBTQ+ communities,” the outlet noted.
