I am asking you to write a letter today using the template below in support of the upcoming bill. The intent of the letters is to prove to cabinet that there is wide support for this legislation in British Columbia, in 2016. The bill would give the same protection to gender identity and gender expression that is given to sexual orientation in the BC Human Rights Code.
The link below leads to a template on Google Docs for persons and organizations to write a letter to their MLA. You can either download it or cut/past its content.

Please feel free to edit it to reflect your own views. The time is right, as the federal liberals are poised to produce their own human rights legislation to address transgender needs, and right now we have a good chance of getting traction on this issue at the provincial level.
Thank you for your support and for letting the government know that you support human rights protection for all British Colombians.
