Canadian authorities provides $500,000 to trans activist group to ‘observe anti-trans organizing’

Canadian Heritage, the division of the Authorities of Canada tasked with selling and supporting “Canadian id and values, cultural improvement, and heritage,” has given $500,000 to a trans activist group to track “anti-trans organizing in Canada” and develop a “security resolution to handle it.” The grant recipient, JusticeTrans, is basically funded by Ladies and Gender Equality Canada. They state on their web site:

“JusticeTrans acknowledges that Canadian regulation is a colonial creation that’s inherently oppressive to the lives of many. Canadian regulation exists to uphold the colonial state’s authority and the unequitable energy buildings it locations upon us. 

As such, the regulation is usually used to hurt Indigenous, Black, and racialized communities and to uphold programs of white supremacy and patriarchy. It additionally has a protracted historical past of getting used as a instrument for transphobia, homophobia, and sexism.

The undertaking being funded, “Monitoring Transphobia: Figuring out and countering anti-trans organizing in Canada,” goals to alter “cultural norms and behaviours and to encourage decision-makers to implement new coverage and practices.”

Canadian Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez just lately handed Bill C-11, the On-line Streaming Act, which provides the federal government the facility to regulate what Canadians see on-line.
