Since 1977 GLBT men have not been able to donate blood due to one of the questions asked to screen people for at-risk behaviours. My aim with this petition is to force Canadian Blood Services to change their questions and enable all people to donate blood, no matter the gender of the people they care about.

Christine Ogley, Canada7 years ago Comments: Blood is desperately needed in Ontario and Canada. Although there have been health scares in the past, I don't think that eliminating all men (or women) who have had anal sex (or had sex with a man who's had anal sex with a man,) is the right way to remedy the situation. All people, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, can engage in risky sexual behaviour. It's time to come up with better strategies to safeguard our blood supply.
