B.C. queers may remember Toby Dancer, after whom the bill was named. Toby lived in Vancouver in the early 90s.
B.C. does not yet included gender identity or gender expression in its human rights legislation; however trans people have been successful in all of the human rights complaints that they have brought on the ground of 'sex' and/or, sometimes, 'disability'. So trans people are protected by the current law.
