Justin Trudeau interrupted a woman during a Q&A session to tell her to use the word “peoplekind” not “mankind”, Evening Standard reports.
The Canadian prime minister said: “We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind.” He was responding to a woman who said her charitable religious organisation was having difficulty with volunteering regulations in Canada.
The Canadian PM faced backlash and ironic comments on his new political correctness diktat:
It comes after few days Canadian lawmakers have passed a bill to make the country’s national anthem gender neutral. Instead of “In all thy sons command,” the anthem’s lyrics will soon be rewritten to read: “In all of us command.”
A professor in Canada who refuses to use gender-neutral pronouns and criticizes political correctness society was banned from using his Google and YouTube accounts in August 2017.
Previously, in Canada a newborn was given the first birth certificate marked ‘unknown’ upon parent’s request.
