In Protected content , Canada passed a new bill in the legislation. Bill C-16 which is to protect to rights of transgender Canadians. This bill requires people to use specific gender pronouns when referring to transgender individuals. There are about 70 pronouns which are to be use correctly based on identity of the transgender individual in question.

This bill caused a lot of heat and outrage among Canadians. Canadian Toronto University professor, author and psychologist Jordan Peterson, became a controversial and outspoken figure surrounding this topic.

In this event, I will give an overview of the reasons of controversy and Jordan Peterson's position. Then we will have an open discussion, asking you what your views are about this.

NOTE: All participants are expected to have a very open, respectful and tolerant tone and attitude in this event. Any less, will not be tolerated.

IMPORTANT: Every person is entitled to their opinion and views on this topic. There are complex issues at hand and we MUST be prepared to respect different views, even if we do not agree with them!

Hope to see you there!
