S2:E18: The Cracks in the Canadian Constitution: Breaking down the walls of sex-based segregation

Season #2

Is there space in the Canadian constitution for transphobia?

Misinformation overload has been pounding the news media airways in Canada. Personal, public attacks on your identity and human rights -- it is more than exhausting. It can lead to policy change that hurts Canadians with diverse gender identities.

Charlotte Dalwood says, 'no' and we had the pleasure of connecting with her from Calgary, Alberta.  Charlotte Dalwood (she/her) is a juris doctor student at the University of Calgary, Faculty of Law. Her publications include articles in CBC News, Rabble, The Edmonton Journal, and Sojourners.
