Alberta anti-trans policies
On January 31st Alberta Premier Danielle Smith announced her party’s plans for pronoun policies in schools, imposing parental opt-ins for LGBTQ2S+ education, restricting trans youth from accessing gender-affirming care and participating in women’s sports teams. Justin Trudeau called these policies the most anti-LGBTQ2S+ in Canada – above and beyond current pronoun policies in Saskatchewan & New Brunswick.
We strongly denounce this legislation which is not backed by evidence, only right wing ideology. For how to fight back see our IG post.
After our first three years we’re taking a beat to see how we are doing!
Early this year we completed our CIHR funded evaluation project. We had over 100 responses to our online survey and conducted interviews with patients, healthcare professionals and other community cancer organisations. We wrapped it up with an analysis of our web and social media analytics.
Stay tuned for the full report coming later this year.
