The following letter was sent to all members of the Canadian Senate. February 23, 2015. Dear Senator: As you know, Bill C-279 is the latest in a series of proposed laws that would extend long-overdue human rights protection to transgender people. We are very concerned that it has taken so long for Parliament to adopt legislation that would not only ensure full human rights protection for trans people, but also help ensure their dignity and equality in the community.

PSAC is a proud ally in the struggle for the advancement of the human rights of gay and lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Canada. Eradicating homophobia and transphobia in the workplace and bargaining and lobbying for the full protection of our GLBT members’ human rights are ongoing priorities for the PSAC. The current, concerted attacks on unions undermine the struggle for human rights. Together, we can work to fend off such attacks by championing the many victories we’ve gained for our members.
