Canada Sees Bill To Ban Ex-Gay Torture Nationwide

CTV News reports:

Justice Minister David Lametti has added another bill to the government’s agenda, tabling new amendments to the Criminal Code, to impose a ban on conversion therapy.

The legislation — a campaign promise and evolution on the government’s position last parliament — is proposing to prohibit religious counselling seeking to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity, nationwide.

The pair were mandated to move forward with a ban on conversion therapy, after Trudeau promised action on eradicating the “harmful and scientifically disproven practice,” during the 2019 fall federal election campaign.
