We, the undersigned, residents of Northumberland County, call upon the House of Commons to:
1. Ban coercive, degrading practices that are designed to change a person's sexual orientation or gender identity;
2. Amend Bill C-6 to fix the definition of conversion therapy by adding the following to Section 320.101 "c) to the expression of views on sexual orientation, sexual feelings or gender identity, such as where teachers, school counsellors, pastoral counsellors, faith leaders, doctors, mental health professionals, friends or family members provide support to persons struggling with their sexual orientation, sexual feelings or gender identity, thus banning Conversion Therapy without banning voluntary counselling or criminalizing conversations"; and
3. Allow parents to speak with their own children about sexuality and gender, and to set house rules about sex and relationships.
