Feds table broadened bill to ban conversion therapy in Canada

The federal government has introduced a reworked bill aiming to outright prohibit both adults and children from being subjected to conversion therapy practices, pledging to the LGBTQ2S+ community that this time will be different. The legislation, titled Bill C-4, proposes to eliminate the harmful practice through four new Criminal Code offences.
