Council votes to make city more inclusive for transgender people

From the Times Colonist article here:

"Victoria city councillors voted unanimously Thursday to make city facilities more welcoming to transgender, gender non-binary and two-spirit people.

“People who are transgender face disproportionate levels of violence and discrimination — that’s a fact,” Coun. Jeremy Loveday said in an interview last week.

“It’s time for the city to develop specific policies to ensure the safety and inclusion of people of all gender identities and gender expressions.”

Loveday and Coun. Marianne Alto put forward a resolution to commit the city to making civic facilities safe, inclusive and equitable for people of all genders, gender identities and gender expressions."
