I’m pleased to see the federal government taking steps to protect the rights of transgendered Canadians. Vancouver is known throughout the world for our diversity and being made stronger and more vibrant through our commitment to quality, acceptance and inclusion. Last year City Council called on the federal government to support the rights, equality, and safety of Transgender residents – both in Canadian law and through the inclusiveness of all City programs and facilities. Vancouver will continue to do all we can to make sure all our residents have equal protection under the law and feel safe and supported in our city, and across the country.
-Mayor Gregor Robertson
