Statement on Transgender Day of Visibility

Please read the following statement from Elizabeth May, MP for Saanich—Gulf Islands and Leader of the Green Party of Canada, recognising Transgender Day of Visibility:

Today is Trans Day of Visibility. Attacks and discrimination against transgender and non-binary people continue to increase, some in leadership have outright supported discriminatory policies and misinformation about trans rights. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is clear that every individual is considered equal regardless of gender identity. I stand with trans and non-binary Canadians and I am proud to recognise the contributions of this community to Canada.”
