    A law coming into effect Friday, January 7, 2022, will ban conversion therapy making it a crime to provide or promote services intended to change or repress a person's sexual orientation or gender identity.

    "With the new law, Canada’s criminal code will prohibit forcing someone to undergo conversion therapy; taking a minor abroad to take part; and profiting from, promoting or advertising the practice. Violations can draw sentences of up to five years’ imprisonment."

    Hawk.....I can only wish the US would do the same thing. But we are so religious. Our religions care for the souls of our people while they encourage our LGBTQIA+ youth to be tortured.

    I'm very happy for Canada. I'm glad a few US states have banned it, but I'd like there to be a federal law against conversion therapy. Hell I'll take the supreme court striking down conversion therapy as unconstitutional, though I can tell if that would actually hold up in court.
