VANCOUVER, British Columbia, November 11, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – After a mother’s plea, a Vancouver Supreme Court judge signed a temporary injunction forbidding a surgeon to perform a planned double mastectomy on the mother’s gender-confused 17-year-old daughter.
The order came at the request of the girl’s mother, identified in the court document as A.M. to protect the identity of her daughter, who is identified as S.B.
The November 3 injunction, which was made public yesterday, prevents cosmetic surgeon Daniel Mckee and Dr. Andrea Szewchuk, the girl’s general practitioner, “from providing SB with counsel, advice, or advocacy in preparation for, promotion of, or performing a double mastectomy or any surgery until 4:00 pm on November 27th, 2020 at which time the injunction will expire, unless it has been extended by order of the court.”
A.M. and her lawyer, Carey Linde, had made efforts to discuss S.B.’s treatments with her doctors, but the doctors would not reply. The injunction was sought to give the mother the time necessary to scrutinize the protocols leading to the doctors’ actions.
“The mother needs to see all of the protocols that led to the two doctors coming to the conclusion that what they intended to do is in the best interest of the child,” Linde said.
A.M. also sued Szewchuk for prescribing her daughter testosterone without seeking permission from the girl’s guardians.
In a written statement to media outlets, A.M. expressed her concerns with the whole process while disputing the claims of trans activists that surgeries and hormones reduce suicide and gender dysphoria.
“I am appalled by the lack of any clinical standards and medical protocols that permit doctors to give gender changing steroids and mastectomies to traumatized teenage girls caught up in a fad who wish they were boys,” she said.
“I am shocked the government through TransCare BC supports such unscientific and very risky experimentation. There is little evidence the irreversible treatment lessens gender dysphoria or reduces the 19 times normal suicide rate,” she continued.
“It is outrageous the SOGI 1 2 3 school program pushes these depressed and anxiety ridden girls to gender change clinics when what they need is psychiatric care. Worst of all the law lets it all be kept secret from parents. Why is the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia permitting this,” she added.
The injunction, which Linde believes to be the first of its kind in Canada, came shortly after Bill C-6 passed second reading in the House of Commons. If passed into law, Bill C-6 will criminalize so-called “conversion therapy,” making it illegal for parents to dissuade their children from sex-change therapies or homosexual activity.
It will, however, still be legal for anyone to persuade these same children to pursue procedures, drugs, and counselling supportive of altering their bodily appearance to that of the opposite sex or of maintaining same-sex attraction.
Please SIGN this petition which asks the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to launch an investigation into the controversial WE Charity contract deal.
Canadians deserve a corruption-free government, but allegations of impropriety are hanging over matters related to the WE Charity contract deal with the current government.
And, only the RCMP is positioned to launch an independent inquiry into the issues of whether or not any laws were broken, and or possible abuse of political office for personal or family gain.
Indeed, the WE Charity was criticized in June 2020 when the Canadian government selected the charity to administer the Canada Student Service Grant program, a $900 million program which would help students experiencing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of particular concern are revelations that WE Charity paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to members of the Trudeau family for past speaking engagements, and that the charity paid for Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s vacation (Morneau later repaid them).
These revelations obviously raise serious questions:
- What is the connection between WE Charity and high-ranking government officials?
- What, if anything, did either party stand to gain from this contract?
- Why and how was the $43.53 M contract awarded to WE Charity without going through a competitive bidding process?
- And, was the Lobbying Act violated?
The main concern is that the charity has deep connections with the Trudeau Family and other important government officials, and that serious conflicts of interests may have existed between members of government and the charity...and that laws may have been broken.
Although an investigation into the connection between the federal government and WE Charity was launched, questions have not been answered. Instead, more questions have been brought up.
Since the story broke, the Liberals have repeatedly delayed voting on the release of WE Charity documents.
And, just recently, a motion, which was sponsored by the Conservatives in the House of Commons and which called for an investigation into the relationships between WE Charity and the government and Ministers of the Crown and their families, was defeated.
But, the fact that the government and its political allies seem to be trying to bury this issue politically should not distract the attention of law enforcement who have a duty to ensure that government officials are held to account for serious breaches of conflict of interest.
No government leader or official should behave as though they are above the law.
Please SIGN this petition which calls on the RCMP to launch an independent investigation into the WE Charity controversy.
Then, please SHARE with your like-minded family, friends and relations.
