Bill C16: One Year Later: Sex, Ideology and Compelled Speech in Canada
Bill C- 16 has incorporated gender identity/expression into Canadian Human Rights Law and the Criminal Code, within a broader policy context predicated on the idea that gender is solely a social construct. The effect is rippling through the social world, affecting schools, universities, the health care systems, the law and journalism.
What implications does this have for free speech?
What punitive measures can and does the law impose on those who violate its provisions?
There is no scientific evidence that supports the idea that gender/sex/biology/sexual proclivity vary independently, but that position is now instantiated into Canadian law. The following four panelists will discuss these issues and more.
The panelists are:
Dr. Debra Soh: will be discussing the science of gender, what makes someone feel "female" or "male," and why gender ideology -- which denies the influence of biology -- is harmful. The common belief nowadays is that gender is a spectrum, and that sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression are unrelated. This is not what the scientific research says.
Jared Brown: will be speaking on the legal aspect of C16. How it legislates compelled speech, what Canadian and US courts have said about compelled speech. Some of the subterfuge and dishonesty of the proponents of the legislation. The politicking behind the scenes of our appearance at the Senate that made clear that the intention of the proponents was to control speech all along.
Barbara Kay: will be speaking on the impact of suppression of free speech is having on journalism. She will speak about transgenderism and the media, she will speak about the phenomenon known in Arabic as ketman, defined by one scholar as the position taken by those who desire to be at one with others, in order not to be alone.
Lindsay Shepherd: rose to prominence after staff at Wilfred Laurier University subjected her to a disciplinary hearing for showing a video discussing Bill C16 to her students while serving as a teaching assistant. She will be speaking about trans activism on university campuses.
Moderated By: Sarina Singh, President, Rights and Freedoms Institute, political and social commentator, Sarina organized the largest discussion on free speech in Canada On November 11th, 2017.
