Madam Speaker, I have had the opportunity to listen to a number of speakers on the legislation thus far, and it is really encouraging to hear comments such as those made by the member across the way.
We recognize that over the years there has been a greater appreciation of transgender identity by all Canadians. That is an encouraging sign. We hear individuals talk about no tolerance with respect to bullying, hate speech, discrimination, and the importance of equal rights.
Could my colleague across the way provide her thoughts on the significant shift over the years toward a better understanding of equal rights for all?
