Mayor of Ottawa Jim Watson has confessed that he is homosexual, reports Lenta, citing Ottawa Citizen.
“I’m gay. There – I said it; or rather, wrote it. Those two words took me almost four decades to utter, but as they say, “Better late than never.” As I look back over my life, and in hindsight, not coming out sooner was a big mistake on my part.”
Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau commented on Watson’s confession and thanked him for sharing his story. “Brave words that I’m sure will inspire Ottawans — and all Canadians — to feel free to be themselves. Thank you for sharing your story with us, Jim”.
