The MP for Sarnia-Lambton wants to weaken a proposed ban on conversion therapy — a dangerous practice that harms young people and the LGBTQ+ community. We're speaking out and fighting back. Add your voice.
Conversion therapy is an attempt to change the sexual orientation of LGBTQ+ individuals to heterosexual. It has been discredited by the World Health Organization and many other credible voices in the medical community. It is unequivocally wrong.
Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, former Ontario NDP MPP, Cheri DiNovo, and the Ontario NDP team led the way on this issue — successfully winning a conversion therapy ban in Ontario in 2015. Parliament is now considering a national ban.
Last month, the MP for Sarnia-Lambton started a petition to allow exceptions to the national ban on conversion therapy. This could leave the LGBTQ+ community, especially young folks, vulnerable to the harmful effects of conversion therapy. We should be affirming, celebrating, and protecting the LGBTQ+ community in Sarnia-Lambton and all across the country — not the other way around.
