M-92 Ban on blood donations by homosexuals

43rd Parliament, 2nd Session

Motion Text

That, pursuant to subsection 13(5) of the Blood Regulations Annex of Food and Drug Act, the House call on the government to: (a) live up to its 2015 and 2019 campaign promises and end the discriminatory and homophobic deferral period for men who have sex with men; (b) immediately exercise the powers given to the Minister of Health to “remove a term or condition from an authorization if she or he determines that the term or condition is no longer necessary to prevent a compromise to human safety or the safety of blood” in order to end the discriminatory and homophobic gay blood ban; and (c) support a gender-neutral screening process that examines the behaviour and risk of those donating blood, while preserving the safety of Canada’s blood supply.
