New Update re: Bill 33, Ontario’s ‘Gender Identity’ Bill

June 7th, 2012

We have just been informed by MPP Cheri DiNovo that Bill 33 will be given its third and final reading on Wednesday, June 13 at 9 AM. A vote is expected to follow directly after.

Bill 33 — or Toby’s Act — will amend the Ontario Human Rights Code to include ‘gender identity’ and ‘gender expression’ as protected grounds. More information on the Bill can be found here: http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_detail.do?locale=en&BillID=2574

A Final Call to Action

If you haven’t already done so, please call, fax, or email your Member of Provincial Parliament to ask them to vote in favour of the Bill. A list of current MPPs, with links to their contact information, can be found here: http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/members/members_current.do?locale=en

If you are unsure of who your MPP is, then you can locate your Riding here http://fyed.elections.on.ca/fyed/en/form_page_en.jsp and search for it in the MPP list above.

And, of course: encourage your contacts to do the same.

We wish you the best in your politicking adventures!
