Statements

Randall Garrison, Member of Parliament for Esquimalt - Saanich - Sooke and the NDP Critic for LGBTQ2+ Issues delivered a speech in the House of Commons today marking the 15th Annual International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, calling for an end to the discrimination, hate and violence that those in the LGBTQ2+ communities still face. More than 70 countires still condone state-sanctioned homophobia and transphobia and it is incumbent upon the Government of Canada to create a path to safety for those LGBTQ2+ refugees here in Canada.
