The trans rights news is also wonderful coming out of the Great White North as C-279 passed another critical step in becoming Canadian federal law.
After hearings on June 3 and June 10, it passed favorably out of the Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights.
It moves back to the Canadian Senate floor for another two hours of debate and a final Third Reading vote that its Senate sponsor, Sen. Grant Mitchell is hopeful the bill will pass..
If it passes Third Reading,C-279 goes to the Governor General for Royal Assent and becomes Canadian law.
I am in admiration of you trans folks who live in Canada. You are living in a nation that is about to pass a law that codifies
your human rights as a trans person. That IS something for Canada to be
proud of and it's something I wish my nation would replicate on our
side of the border
I will keep hoping and praying that C-279 becomes a reality and you have something to really celebrate when Canada Day happens July 1..
