Canada Moves to Ban Discrimination Against Transgender People – The New York Times

Discrimination against transgender people will be formally banned across Canada, and crimes against them will be included in the country’s hate crimes law, under new legislation introduced on Tuesday by the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The legislation comes at a time of intense debate over transgender rights in the United States, and it fulfills a pledge Mr. Trudeau made during his election campaign last year. The government timed the introduction of the bill to coincide with an International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
