Please say it ain’t so . . .
A column by Rob Salerno on the Daily Xtra site has a tidbit of information that could be almost devastating for some transgender people in Canada.
Reports Rob: “Trudeau also told Daily Xtra that a Liberal government would bring forward legislation to include trans people in the Canadian Human Rights Act and in the hate crime provisions of the Criminal Code. This may prove tricky as any new legislation would have to pass through the Senate, which blocked the legislation in the last Parliament. Trudeau will be able to appoint 22 new senators upon taking office, but that will still leave him shy of a majority. He’ll need to be certain that the Senate doesn’t block the legislation before introducing it in Parliament.”
