Is the updated Canadian Aeronautics Act excluding some transgender people from flying?

Updated Canadian air regs appear to prevent pre-op and transiting trans from boarding planes.

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Admittedly, I’ve spent hours trying to google some sense into this without finding satisfying results. It is clear, however, that a look at the updated Aeronautics Act regs at the Canadian Department of Justice website raises a few eyebrows, particularly this one:

“Sec 5.2(1)(c) of the ID screening regs of Aeronautics Act: “An air carrier shall not transport a passenger if the passenger does not appear to be of the gender indicated on the identification he or she presents.”

This would make it difficult, if not impossible for pre-op or transiting people to board planes.

There is more we need to find out here and is not much else available to report other than what I’ve stated. I suspect there will more to come later and I will update this post.
