“The Quebec Civil Code attaches sexual organs to gender, which in turn attaches certain stereotypes,” said Marc-Antoine Cloutier, executive director of the legal clinic Juripop, in French.
“These laws cause deaths, we should not forget that. When you impose a law like this, you force trans* people to out themselves to everyone.”
The Centre asserts that the law is discriminatory against trans* people. According to Gabrielle Bouchard, Peer Support and Trans* Advocacy Coordinator at the Centre, the law sends the wrong message to trans* youth.
