Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • We are deeply troubled by the largely unrestricted social and medical options being presented to children struggling with gender ideation in Canada. Recent revelations, including the discredited nature of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) and the findings of the Cass Review, commissioned by NHS England, underscore significant concerns regarding the safety and effectiveness of current treatment modalities;
  • The protection of our youth from irreversible and harmful medical interventions should be a top priority for the Government of Canada; and
  • We implore the House of Commons to prioritize evidence-based practices and take decisive action to ensure the safety and well-being of all children and adolescents in Canada.
We, the undersigned, residents and citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. Cease all physical medical procedures for individuals under the age of 18 and gender-affirming care for those under 16 years of age;
2. Adopt evidence-based guidelines that prioritize non-invasive, reversible forms of intervention until individuals reach an age where they can provide informed consent; and
3. Disengage from any association or endorsement of WPATH and its recommendations, as they have been largely discredited and are not conducive to safeguarding the well-being of children and adolescents.
