Pink News reports that in North American trade negotiations, Liberal Party leader and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau is standing alone to defend the rights of pregnant US citizens.

They say that:
the draft text of the deal includes a pledge to enact “policies that protect workers against employment discrimination on the basis of sex, including with regard to pregnancy, sexual harassment, sexual orientation, gender identity.”

The Republicans are up in arms about this of course. How dare there be protection in the workplace against being groped by a predatory tosser, eh Donald?

Though of course that kind of gutting of employment rights is just what Theresa and her personal sidekick Jeremy are working tirelessly to deliver for the people of Britain. And our trades unions have already carefully expunged the Liberals from UK politics almost completely so there won't be a powerful Trudeau-like figure here to intervene. Aren't we lucky? Thanks Unite, thanks Unison, thanks Call-Me-Dave.
