CBA position on Bill C-16

  • May 12, 2017

In an appearance before the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee, the CBA encouraged Senators to pass Bill C-16, An Act to Amend the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code, without amendment.

The CBA believes the bill will advance equality in Canada, and provide tangible protections for  transgender people from discrimination and hate crimes.

Marie Laure Leclercq, lawyer with De Grandpré Chait, and Siobhan O’Brien, associate with Hicks Morley, appeared on behalf of the CBA.
