Petition to House of Commons in Parliament Assembled

We, the undersigned citizens or residents of Canada draw the attention of the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to the following:

THAT, WHEREAS

  • Bill C-6, An Act to Amend the Criminal Code (Conversion Therapy), is currently in consideration by the Canadian Parliament.

  • The term "conversion therapy" is vaguely defined in this Bill and is open to an inappropriate amount of interpretation by Canadian courts.

  • Under this Bill, Canadian parents, religious leaders, and teachers will be subject to prosecution under the Criminal Code for providing loving support and guidance—according to their fundamental religious or philosophical beliefs—to children who are struggling with their sexuality or gender.

  • Under this Bill, children are given an irresponsible amount of latitude to make major sexual and medical decisions that will have life-long implications.

  • This Bill discriminates against LGBTQ individuals seeking for guidance and counselling towards heterosexual or cis-gender behaviour and regulates choices that Canadian citizens should be permitted to make for themselves.

THEREFORE, your petitioners call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to protect the moral, religious, philosophical and sexual interests of the citizens of Canada by preventing the passage of this Bill into Law.

Presented to the House of Commons
