It's offensive to possibly only 3% of the population. This is just another example of government lunacy and the tail-wag-dog sanctioned idiocy.

If being polite and referring to people how they’d like to be referred to is lunacy - call me crazy.

Ya but they have free healthcare! /sarcasm
LOL People praise Canada up and down because of the perks Canadian citizens have but this is just ridiculous.
Just to play devils advocate though "Canadian Gov agency tells staff they can't use words father or mother" is a false statement. It's not that they can't use it, it's just they can't assume. If the preference is known they can use it.
Now I'm not a fan of this idea, but at the same time you shouldn't over sensationalize titles, especially when it's not even an accurate statement
My question is, what about the Majority of people who are offended by this change? Screw them? Screw the majority! Let's cater to the minority who all have mental issues thinking they are a woman when they have a penis! ya I said it, trans have mental problems.

Harper became a dictator(or at least appeared so) and got a huge boot. Trudeau gets a majority. Means you can do pretty much what you want. We went from one to the other. Just a different colour.
