Letter on Bill C-279: An Act to amend the Criminal Code and the Canada Human Rights Act (Gender Identity)

We wrote to BC’s five Senators calling on them to pass Bill C-279 urgently and without amendment to ensure that the Canadian Human Rights Act and Criminal Code offer protection to trans people in Canada. Canada’s trans community faces extreme levels of violence, stigma and discrimination. Bill C-279 offers transgender Canadians protection from hate crimes under the Criminal Code and assured their right to equality under the Canadian Human Rights Act
