    “Many subtle and not so subtle discriminatory policies and practices remain in place in Canada,” said MP Craig Scott (Toronto Danforth). “It is past time to end discriminatory practices like the ban on blood and organ donations by gay men and past time to remove the unequal age of consent for anal sex from Canadian law.”

    The package of measures the NDP has introduced in the House includes:

    · Bill C-279, which would guarantee equal rights for transgender and gender variant Canadians

    · Motion M-516, which calls for an end to discriminatory policies on blood and organ donation from gay men

    · Bill C-600, which would suspend criminal records for gay offences which are no longer illegal

    · Bill C-448, which would equalize the age of consent for all by repealing the unconstitutional section 159 from the Criminal Code

    · Motion M-517, which would revise service records for those discharged from the Canadian Forces on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity

    · Motion M-521, which would secure an apology for civil servants fired on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity

    Good ideas, especially the ones about transgender people.

    But don't you just love the fact that no one noticed that Kathleen Wynne is gay?
