Madam Speaker, let me give a specific illustration in my question of why I will not be supporting the bill.
There was a rape counselling group in the Vancouver area that was hauled into the legal system because it refused to take, as a counsellor, a gentlemen who had transformed into a lady. The organization said it violated its principles. It only wanted someone to be a rape crisis counsellor whose entire life was as a woman.
Why should organizations like rape counselling organizations be discriminated against under legislation such as the government is proposing?
