This is such bullshit. These people have no decency what so ever. Would a person who a racial or ethnic minority be treated this way? What about someone differently abled?
Transgender woman claims minister asked her to leave, re-routed Governor General’s route to avoid her
Posted: Dec 19, 2011
The Northwest Territories’ Finance Minister Michael Miltenberger is facing a human rights complaint.
A woman in Fort Smith, N.W.T., says Miltenberger discriminated against her during the Governor General’s visit to the Aurora College campus on Dec. 9 because she is transgender.
The way transgender people self-identify does not necessarily match their biological sex. Landrie was born male but identifies and dresses as a female.
Governor General David Johnston was in the territory December 9th for a tour.
Gabrielle Landrie, who is a math and business student at the college, said Miltenberger asked her to leave when she was standing near a computer lab with a friend.
“Mr. Miltenberger walked up to us, looked at me directly, and said ‘You have to leave’,” said Landrie. “And I said, ‘oh?’, and he said ‘You spooked the governor general so you have to leave’.”
