Canada Passes Bill C-16 Making It A Hate Crime With Jail Time To Address Transgenders Using Wrong Pronoun

(Before It's News)

Canada passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training.

Canada’s Senate passed Bill C-16, which puts “gender identity” and “gender expression” into both the country’s Human Rights Code, as well as the hate crime category of its Criminal Code by a vote of 67-11, according to LifeSiteNews. The bill now only needs royal assent from the House of Commons to pass into law.

“Great news,” announced Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister. “Bill C-16 has passed the Senate – making it illegal to discriminate based on gender identity or expression. #LoveisLove.”

“Proud that Bill C-16 has passed in the Senate,” said Jody Wilson-Raybould, the country’s attorney general and minister of justice. “All Canadians should feel #FreeToBeMe.”

“There’s an argument that transgender identity is too subjective a concept to be enshrined in law because it is defined as an individual’s deeply felt internal experience of gender,” said Grant Mitchell, a conservative senator, in November 2016. “Yet we, of course, accept outright that no one can discriminate on the basis of religion, and that too is clearly a very deeply subjective and personal feeling.”

Jordan Peterson, a professor at the University of Toronto, and one of the bill’s fiercest critics, spoke to the Senate before the vote, insisting that it infringed upon citizens’ freedom of speech and institutes what he views as dubious gender ideology into law.

“Compelled speech has come to Canada,” stated Peterson. “We will seriously regret this.”

Shouted down because he spoke the truth:

This is what Canadian college students think of free speech.

“[Ideologues are] using unsuspecting and sometimes complicit members of the so-called transgender community to push their ideological vanguard forward,” said the professor to the Senate in May. “The very idea that calling someone a term that they didn’t choose causes them such irreparable harm that legal remedies should be sought [is] an indication of just how deeply the culture of victimization has sunk into our society.”

Peterson has previously pledged not to use irregular gender pronouns and students have protested him for his opposition to political correctness.

“This tyrannical bill is nothing but social engineering to the nth degree, all in the name of political correctness,” Jeff Gunnarson, vice president of Campaign Life Toronto, a pro-life political group in Canada, told LifeSiteNews.

    This is a direct assault on free speech. What percentage of the Canadian population is transgende? Answer: Approximately 0.5%. Our ultra-liberal government is catering to the most extreme minorities. Last time I checked, majority rule is a fundamental and defining aspect of democracy. Our millennial population has been so dumbed down by “political correctness” and backwards institutionalized education, that they don’t even realize that their being groomed to become witless defenders of a self-defeating endgame. They cry for equal rights and then chastise those who hold beliefs that differ from their own. A country where freedom of expression is denied because 0.5% of the population is offended, is not a free country at all.

    To be perfectly honest, I’d bet that nearly every straight person is offended by the massive display of indecent exposure that commences every year during the gay pride parade. If you want to be gay, that’s your business, but parading around in G-strings while waving dildo’s like downtown T.O. is a f’n fantasia party, is not only absolutely disrespectful, but it’s utterly repulsive. If I had children, I would not want them to see that. But, the 99% of the population remains silent because they don’t want to offend the 0.5%.

    Do my beliefs make me a criminal? Nobody on earth can honestly say they can go a month without offending someone. Just because no one has mentioned it to your face, does not mean they weren’t offended.

    You’d sorta have to understand Canada and Canadians for something like this to make any sense at all.
    Canadians are polite to everyone and have no wish to be rude to anyone.
    It works. And everything’s fine!
    Except: we’re getting rude people these days – and I’d like to say they’re all ‘just passing through’ heheh…
    But I suspect many are home-grown (a worrisome trend).
    Anyway they’re making lots of things illegal these days, just to make certain we ‘get it’.
    Whereas basic common sense and manners have always worked up until this point…
    :lol:

    I’m waiting for the day it’s illegal to hate anything. Utopia enforcement act. Where anything goes and it’s not an act of hate because as long as you say you love it or love doing it … it makes sense. I wonder … did Jeffrey Dahlmer love serial killing?
