Siksay's bill is back - NDP bill calls for protection for transgender and transsexual people

burnabynow.com - By Jennifer Moreau, Burnaby Now

A private member's bill with roots in Burnaby on transgender and transsexual rights has risen again in Parliament.

The NDP's Randall Garrison, from the Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca riding, resurrected a bill to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act to prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and gender expression. It would also change the Criminal Code of Canada to cover hate speech against transgender and transsexual people.
