OTTAWA, Ontario, 5 December, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A high ranking representative from the Canadian Human Rights Commission (HRC) told the Canadian Justice Committee last week that a private member’s bill that would afford special federal protection to so-called ‘transgender’ men and women “strictly speaking…isn’t necessary”.

The HRC representative said that “the commission, the tribunal, and the courts view gender identity and gender expression as protected by the Canadian Human Rights Act [CHRA].”

The comment was made by Ian Fine, acting secretary general, secretary general’s office, Canadian Human Rights Commission during the 53rd meeting for Justice and Human Rights last Tuesday.

It's not necessary, it's a make work project, nothing more. It's not like they can legally be discriminated against, they are as covered under the current charter the same as anyone else is.

This reminds me of all those calls to make laws against "Honour Killing". Completely unnecessary, we already have that, it's called Homicide.

Laws to enforce laws. Like our 'new' distracted driving laws.

Distracted driving laws are made because we are too distracted to pay attention to what we are doing.
Actually it is necessary because some people are on the phone, others are texting and others are now
putting on makeup and eating and drinking and doing God knows what. people were going to take it
to court because they were not talking they were texting etc, so make it all illegal in one swoop and
we're done.

Been a law against this since I started driving. Called DRIVING WITHOUT DUE CARE AND ATTENTION.

Exactly taxslave. The law was always there. The new law is essentially to give it teeth.

Make the official name 'Honourcide' and we'll call it a draw.... Hopefully that will appease everyone
