UR Pride prepares for legal action over new provincial pronoun, name policy


CTV News reports that the University of Regina’s Pride Centre (UR Pride) is preparing to file a lawsuit at a Court of King’s Bench over a new Government of Saskatchewan policy regarding student names and pronouns. The new policy requires parents of children under the age of 16 to give consent to schools if the child wants to change their pronouns or name. UR Pride has requested that the province suspend the policy; if it does not, UR Pride will ask the court to grant an injunction that will keep the policy from coming into effect. Bennett Jensen, director of the advocacy group that is co-representing UR Pride, said that the policy violates the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
