THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — A so-called “family values” organization has targeted 15 Conservative members of Parliament for their support of an amendment to the Canadian Human Rights Act which gives transgender Canadians stronger protection against discrimination.
The Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) became angry following a Parliament vote approving the amendment (Bill C-279) – had the 15 Conservatives voted the other way, the amendment would have been defeated. There will be another vote this fall and if passed, the measure will move on to the Senate. The CLC in the meantime needs to convince nearly all of the 15 MPs to change their minds if they wish to derail the amendment.
MP Bruce Stanton (one of the 15 Conservatives voting for the amendment): “I’ve heard from people in our own riding that are conflicted in this way and that are discriminated against. It’s a great source of anguish…. I believe that this group of Canadians deserves to have the same tools available to them in the law to prevent that kind of discrimination.”
I’d like to remind our transgender Canadian friends that they need to support our conservative allies in Parliament. All 15 MPs need to be contacted and praised for doing the right thing in the face of this opposition from within their own party.
