On Wednesday, December 1, a conversion therapy ban titled Bill C-4 was fast-tracked through the House of Commons.
This week Conservative Senator Leo Housakos sought unanimous approval for the bill to become law — and he succeeded.
Two prior efforts to bring forward similar conversion therapy bans failed, due to the troubling language of the bills and the fact that Canada already has laws in place that prevent forced therapy practices.
Bill C-4, for many, is a step too far.
Why? Because Bill C-4 renders any therapy or counselling — even if voluntarily sought out by an adult — that encourages or directs an individual to reduce non-heterosexual attraction or behaviour illegal.
It also criminalizes any counselling services which may seek to assist anyone, including children, who may wish to de-transition and revert to their biological sex.
This bill is not about protecting Canadians — it is about control, pushing an ideological narrative, and it is a direct affront to religious freedoms.
This is a shocking bill and one that must be challenged.
