An Edmonton man whose Valentine's Day was marred by a co-worker's homophobic insult now has a few more friends to count on, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Sikorski was working at a party supply store in February when he received a handmade Valentine that was defaced with the word "faggot" under his name. "You are not getting shifts for a reason," the co-worker had written.
On Saturday, Boissonnault gave Sikorski a folder that included photos and letters of support from himself, Trudeau, and other MPs in Parliament.
"Know that your friends outnumber the haters by the millions, and I am one of those friends," Trudeau wrote in the card.
