A Saskatchewan human rights commissioner has resigned over the province’s proposed legislation that would require schools to obtain parental consent if a student under 16 years of age wants to change their gender pronouns or identity.
Heather Kuttai, who has a transgender son, said she believes the legislation puts vulnerable children at risk. “It felt personal,” she told The Canadian Press.
“The assault on human rights of children really drove it home for me and my family. I realized I couldn’t continue to be a part of a system that fundamentally is anti-trans.”
She gave her resignation to Premier Scott Moe on Oct. 16, effective immediately. Ms. Kuttai is one of six human rights commissioners in the province.
Saskatchewan MLAs are in the middle of an extended sitting to debate Bill 137, dubbed the Parental Bill Of Rights, introduced on Oct. 12.
