As previously discussed, awesome New Democrat MP and spokesperson for LGBTT rights Bill Siksay continues to advance his Bill C-389 to protect trans and gender-variant people from discrimination by adding gender identity and expression to the Canadian Human Rights Act and the hate crimes sections of the Criminal Code.
It’s just been announced that there’s only a week left before it’s voted on on second reading. Its second hour of debate will be this Tuesday at 5:30 PM Eastern, and the vote is expected the next day.
Every vote will be crucial in this minority Parliament. Bill’s issued a call to action on his website; check it out, as well as this action centre with lots of ways to contact your MP to make sure they support equal protection for trans and genderqueer people. Take action today!
