Correctional service given too much discretion in new gender-diverse policy
Misgendering Indigenous people in prison is abuse of a demographic that is already subject to significant discrimination and harm.

NWAC implores the CSC and Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino, pictured, to fix this policy before any more harms occur, writes Sarah Niman. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
