"There is evidence suggesting that psychologically and emotionally vulnerable children are identifying as “transgender” at enormously disproportionate rates, and that children in foster care identify as such at a rate 15 to 20 times higher than children not in foster care.
There is also evidence suggesting that “transgender science” is tainted with pharmaceutical industry conflicts of interest and that the most vulnerable of Canadian youth are being pressured into identifying as “transgender” and subjected to a regimen of drugs that are permanently sterilizing them and causing irreversible damage to their bodies and their lives.
Vulnerable Canadian children (including a disproportionate number of those diagnosed with autism), who have no one to speak up for them, deserve better.
There should be a moratorium on this practice, at least until an inquiry can be completed to ensure that there are no conflicts of interest with pharmaceutical companies or any other entities present in this process.
I am the only CPC leadership candidate who is prepared to stand up against radical gender ideology and defend parental sovereignty and the integrity of the Canadian family. I will oppose Bill C-8, I will ban sex-change treatments for minors, and I will repeal Bill C-16, which enshrined radical gender ideology in Canadian law.
There are many other voices that are being raised against these related issues: some of them are parental rights advocates, some of them are libertarians concerned about free speech, and some are left-liberals such as J.K. Rowling. Jenn Smith is a transgender activist who has started an important online petition that calls for a National Inquiry into the mass medical gender transitioning/“sex reassignment” of vulnerable and at-risk children and adolescents in Canada.
As a Member of Parliament, I’m pleased to be able to sponsor Jenn Smith’s petition, and I look forward to presenting it to my colleagues in the House of Commons. This touches on an issue of justice that cuts across political lines.
Please note that, although Jenn's petition was started by the good people of Abbotsford, B.C., it is open to all Canadians to sign.
