O Canada

This morning on public radio I heard that Ontario has become the first Canadian province to protect transgender people in its human rights legislation...legislation that has protected gay and lesbian people since the 1980's. 

This tickles me for two primary reasons...

First, because I appreciate their action on behalf of the human rights of all people...not just people like me...not just people who are in the norm...but really protecting human rights.

Second, because in the news story I also heard that all three political parties supported this legislation.  Way to come together for your people!

Thank you to our northern neighbor for this great model!  I like the world you are creating for our children.
