Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) members have introduced new policy proposals ahead of their 2023 convention that will determine the party’s stance on women’s and children’s rights versus trans ideology.

Conservatives set to reconsider policies on women’s rights, trans issues

The CPC will meet in Quebec City from September 7–9 to vote on several new policy proposals.

One proposal that CPC delegates will vote on is opposing medical interventions in youth under 18 who suffer from gender dysphoria. 

The proposal titled “Protecting Children’s Mental and Physical Health” seeks to ban “life altering medicinal or surgical interventions on minors under 18 to treat gender confusion or dysphoria, and encourage positive mental and physical health support for all Canadians suffering from gender dysphoria and related mental health challenge.”

Currently, the pharmaceutical and surgical interventions given to minors in Canada is euphemistically referred to as “gender-affirming care.” 

Last year, a Canadian doctor spoke out regarding Canada’s uptick in transgender surgeries for youth, suggesting medical professionals should slow down. 

The CPC proposal comes amid a growing number of detransitioners – individuals who take on a trans identity but later in life realize they aren’t actually transgender and revert to their original sex. 

Many detransitioners have admitted they were actually dealing with mental health issues such as anxiety or depression, and mistakenly thought presenting as the opposite sex would make them feel better.

Detransitioners have been outspoken about regretting life-altering surgeries such as castration, or receiving treatment with irreversible effects such as hormone blockers. 

Protecting women’s spaces and sports

Another CPC policy proposal would protect women in women’s spaces such as changerooms, washrooms, and prisons.

“The Conservative Party of Canada believes that women are entitled to the safety, dignity, and privacy of single-sex spaces (e.g., prisons, shelters, locker rooms, washrooms) and the benefits of women-only categories (e.g., sports, awards, grants, scholarships),” the proposal reads.

This proposal comes after female athletes in the US have shared horror stories of having to undress in women’s changerooms in front of a naked biological man with a penis. 

Regardless of whether policy resolutions pass or fail during the convention, CPC leader Pierre Poilievre ultimately has the authority to determine the official party policy.

In 2021, alongside the Trudeau Liberals, Conservative MPs unanimously supported Bill C-4, which banned “conversion therapy,” effectively making it illegal to “repress a person’s non-cisgender gender identity.” 

In other words, the bill made it illegal to try and talk “trans youth” out of their gender dysphoria.
