Canadian equivalent of Girl Scouts – the Girl Guides – considering transgender youths

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — No doubt prompted by the on goings in the United States, the Girl Guides of Canada are being pressured whether they’ll be opening their doors to trans kids.

CEO Deborah Del Duca of Girl Guides of Canada: “Our board is seeking advice from medical and law professionals, and will deal with requests on a case-by-case basis”.

There isn’t much else to report at this time however I hope when faced with a case, the Girl Guides welcome trans kids into their organization and avoid a needless showdown.

It is interesting the Canadian Boys Scouts equivalent — Scouts Canada — avoided having this dilemma by progressively opening their doors to both boys and girls back in 1998!
