Justice committee  That's correct. That was Justice La Forest's conclusion. In fact, he recommended that gender identity be added as a ground to the act.

Justice committee  I'm sorry, but I just don't feel that I have the ability to address the criminal aspect of this bill or the previous one, and I would feel more comfortable with the changes around the proposed amendments to the Canadian Human Rights Act.

Justice committee  We have the same information available to us. Clearly, we are disturbed by the findings of some of the reports, and certainly around issues concerning mental health, depression, and suicide—all of those statistics are alarming.
