To this day, it is legal to refuse or fire someone from their job solely due to the fact that they are transgender;
It is legal to refuse or kick someone out of residency solely due to the fact that they are transgender;
It is legal to discriminate against someone solely due to the fact that they are transgender;
We need to help put a stop to the discrimination transgender individuals face;
We call upon the House of Commons to take this petition into consideration in helping pass Bill C-16, to help make the world a safer place for the transgender community;
This is not only a transgender right, it is a human right. This is a significant step in creating the awareness necessary to counter the widespread discrimination transgender people faced everywhere from the workplace to the health care system; and
We call upon the House of Commons to help make this important step. Anti discrimination laws covering gender identity and expression are an important part of the solution because they can aide in stopping the discrimination before it happens. We call upon the House of Commons to pass Bill C-16 to help make our world a better place.
We, the undersigned, Transgender Identifying and/or Transgender Supporting Canadian Citizens, call upon the House of Commons to support Bill C-16, An Act to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code.
