In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - October 2, 2014


New Democrat MP Randall Garrison appears at the committee to discuss his transgender rights bill. C-279 would amend the Canadian Human Rights Act to include gender identity and gender expression as prohibited grounds for discrimination. It would also amend the hate crimes section of the Criminal Code. The private member's bill was first introduced in September 2011 and was re-instated at the start of the current session. Testifying alongside the MP is Liberal Senator Grant Mitchell, sponsor of the bill in the Senate.
Gerald Chipeur, lawyer for the Siksika Health Services, and Suzanne McLeod, lead of special projects at the clinic, address the need for clarity on the part of health administrators and policy makers in connection with proposed amendments to the Canadian Human Rights Act. (October 2, 2014)
