TORONTO, Feb. 8 /CNW/ - Campaign Life Coalition has expressed concern
regarding Bill C-389 coming up for a final vote in Parliament on
February 9, 2011. This Bill seeks to add 'gender identity' and 'gender
expression' to the Canadian Human Rights Code and the Criminal Code. It
could also result in transgenderism being taught as acceptable to
students as young as five years old.
"This bathroom bill is potentially dangerous because male cross-dressers
and drag queens would have the legal right to use female bathrooms,"
said Jim Hughes, National President of Campaign Life Coalition (CLC).
"It not only flies in the face of common sense, but is also potentially
dangerous by creating the legitimized access that sexual predators
In Ontario, Premier Dalton McGuinty's all-day Kindergarten program
requires that teachers combat "preconceived notions" about the gender
of five-year-olds. A document outlining the program states that,
"Preconceived notions about children's …gender… create barriers that
reduce engagement and equitable outcomes."
"The passage of Bill C-389 will only cement the provincial government's
agenda to bring the controversial issues into Kindergarten classes,"
said Alissa Golob of Campaign Life Coalition. "These attacks will only
get stronger if C-389 passes and the activists behind this legislation
will have the perceived 'moral authority' to demand that transgenderism
be taught in school as something that is natural and normal."
Campaign Life Coalition urges people to contact their MP and tell them
to vote against C-389 on February 9th.
