The landmark law bans so-called “conversion therapy” on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender children and prevents medical practitioners from billing OHIP for it for adults.
No longer will misguided Ontario parents be able to force their LGBTQ children into this horrible non-treatment, which many have described as abusive and greatly damaging to the individuals in question.
This is a good day for Ontario! (I wrongly posted yesterday Ontario was the first province in Canada to do this, believing the Toronto Star's reporting. In fact, Manitoba passed a similar law in May.)
Let's hope other provinces follow suit soon.
