Support Transgender Canadians
My name is Jessica Dempsey I am a Transgender Women living in Canada. Currently I have no protection under the Canadian Criminal Code against a motivated hate crime. This means if I was attacked because of my Transgender identity the perputator can not be charged with a hate crime. Unfortunately every Transgender Canadian is not protected under the Canadian Criminal Code. Farthermore, gender identity & gender expression is not included in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The result isTransgender Canadians like myself face daily discrimination accessing health care, proper identification, housing, employment, bathrooms, and safe places. To ensure equalty for Transgender Canadians please sign this petition which will be presented to the Federal Government of Canada.
