At 11:48 min mark: Interview with MLA Spencer Chandra Herbert. Monday July 25 2016, history was made. Legislation to explicitly protect transgender rights in B.C.’s Human Rights Code passed into law Monday. The legislation was fast-tracked through the house in one day, during a special summer session of the legislature. Attorney General Suzanne Anton said the legal change was necessary because many transgender people had clearly told government they did not feel the human rights code adequately protected them under the law. Vancouver West End NDP MLA Spencer Chandra Herbert said he was pleased that governing B.C. Liberal Party finally enacted the legal change after several years of not enacting his private members’ bills on the subject. Host Jane Bouey talks with Spencer about the legislation, Pride, and politics.
