Urge Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach to Add Sexuality to Human Rights Code

According to Slap Upside The Head:

"Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach has announced that he will not bring Alberta’s Human Rights code up to date with the rest of Canada this legislative session.

Alberta is currently the only Canadian province that doesn’t include protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation in its human rights code. While Stelmach told the Calgary SUN that adding these protections is “one of several issues under review” for future sessions, he offered no timeline or hints of priority, saying the changes would not be simple."

Please use the form below to contact Premier Ed Stelmach to move swiftly to bring about this important piece of legislation.
