Response to Conservative MP Joan Crockatt, Alleged Egale Consultation, and Bill C-279 

During Calgary Pride, Conservative MP Joan Crockatt cited a consultation with Egale Canada Human Rights Trust as her rationale for opposing Bill C-279, stating that the Bill isn’t effective in protecting the rights of Canada’s trans community.
 
Egale would never endorse or encourage or tacitly approve of a vote against C-279, in the form passed by the House of Commons. To use consultation with us as an explanation of their vote against Bill would be a complete misrepresentation.
