Trans rights bill moves to second reading in Ontario Canada
Members of the Trans Lobby Group watched with reserved excitement as NDP MPP Cheri DiNovo tabled Tobys Law for the fourth time at Queens Park Feb 21.
The bill will amend the Ontario Human Rights Code to include gender identity and gender expression. This is the first time the bill has the support of all three political parties, which DiNovo says may help to speed its passing.
Ottawa Centre Liberal MPP Yasir Naqvi says he proudly put his name on the bill.
Today we made history tabling Tobys Law with support from members from all three parties, he says. This is the first step. It will now be debated in the legislature and passed. This will ensure we protect the human rights of the trans community in Ontario.
