Thank you for your interest in Bill C-6, An Act to Amend the Criminal Code (Conversion Therapy). On June 22nd, the bill was passed by the House of Commons at third reading. I did not vote in favour of the bill.
I support a conversion therapy ban. However, I don’t support the ban in this legislation. C-6 is not a clear and precise law that only seeks to criminalizes conversion therapy. It could have been and it should have been, but that was not the intent. I encourage you to explore the resources and testimonies below for a clear understanding of why I voted against this legislation.
