QUEBEC — Bravo for the Girl Guides of Canada, which has updated its guidelines to welcome transgender girls ages 5 to 18 as well as trans women who wish to be troop leaders.

I particularly like what Girl Guides Chief Commissioner Pamela Rice says in a Canadian Press article posted on the Montreal Gazette’s web site

“She says the central message that shaped the new guidelines is simple —  regardless of how a child was born, a girl is a girl.”
