Muzzled BC father of transgender girl out on bail

In 2018, CD filed an injunction to stop his teenaged daughter from receiving testosterone treatments, but the courts ruled his child was mature enough to decide on her treatment.

A BC father sentenced to six months in jail for sharing details regarding his daughter getting testosterone without his permission has been released on bail and will appeal his sentence.

CD, as he is known in court documents, was released on bail Friday according to Carey Linde, a family lawyer who represented him.

“Last Friday he was released on bail from the Court of Appeal to return in November. That may or may not be the actual appeal date. He’s on very strict bail terms,” Linde said in an interview with Western Standard.

In 2018, CD filed an injunction to stop his teenaged daughter from receiving testosterone treatments, but the courts ruled his child was mature enough to decide on her treatment.

The judge also forbade CD from attempting to persuade his child to stop receiving cross-sex hormones and ordered that CD refer to the child as male and by the adopted male name both inside and outside of court and that doing otherwise would constitute “family violence” under BC’s Family Law Act.

Some of these conditions were later reversed with the help of intervention by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms. However, Linde said CD’s bail conditions are stricter than ever.

“They’re more restrictive and tighter and prohibitive than the terms that were originally set…He basically can’t say anything to anybody that in any way relates to his case,” Linde said.

“When I visited him in the cells, he was remarkably composed. He’d rather not be there, but he knew why he was there, and he accepted that.”

CD pleaded guilty but Linde said the harshness of his sentence brought public attention.

“The Crown initially recommended 45 days. It’s unusual for a judge to not go along with a plea agreement. And when he got hit with six months, that was a heavy, heavy hit,” Linde said.

“There’s a huge groundswell, of not just public support, but of lawyers who are using words like ‘outrageous’, ‘outlandish’, ‘shocked’ by the length of the sentence.”

CD raised more than $50,000 on a crowd fundraising website, but another judge ordered CD to pay $30,000 of that to Ronald McDonald House. Criminal attorney Vincent Larochelle, a former Rhodes Scholar and Oxford Law graduate, will appeal CD’s sentence and the legality of the judge’s order to pay a charity.

The Western Standard spoke with CD in March while he still granted interviews.

“The saddest part is that you know your daughter thinks she’s doing the right thing. And you know that she believes that she’s doing something good for herself and that this is what she needs…” he said.

“I just can’t even imagine what all these children are going through. And right now they’re on a pedestal, they think they’re doing something fantastic, how cool they are, you know, they get all this special treatment. It’s really good for their mental health that way…but it’s gonna be short lived, and they have to live with the consequences for the rest of their lives. I mean, what kid at the age of 13 and 14 is thinking about having a family? Well, my daughter gave that up. She’s sterile. In fact, she gave up sex because her genitals, they stopped because she doesn’t go through puberty…

 “I felt I couldn’t be one of those parents in the moment that just coddled their kid because this is what their kid wanted, no matter how important it was, because I know that in a number of years, I’ll probably be getting to see her every day. I will be the one that my child comes back to you and says, ‘Dad, thanks for fighting. Shoot, I wish I would have listened.’ And she will be angry with these doctors and with her mom for just letting her do this…

“I just really think people don’t really know. I think it sounds like something that’s out of a fiction novel, or maybe out of the Third Reich or something, right? They don’t believe this is happening here in Canada, in the US. And so they don’t address it, because they think that a lot of this is too far-fetched.”

    NOT True Teresa . . .

    “In a national survey conducted by The National Center for Transgender Equality in 2015, 40 percent of transgender adults reported that they had attempted suicide at some point in their lifetimes.

    It isn’t only the adults who are suffering.

    According to a 2017 CDC survey, roughly 35 percent of transgender high school students had attempted suicide within the past year.”

    I have to question where the person commenting as Left Coast got their information on transgender suicides. Studies have shown that when those who transition, if supported by friends, family, and schools or workplace will have a suicide risk approaching that of the general population. What drives the suicide rate up is not accepting them and doing so at a younger age works. By the way, the policy is no surgery is done on a transgender youth. When puberty starts they are put on blockers.

    The “Courts” . . . the “Doctors” and anyone who supports or condones this abuse of Minor Children should be Locked up for Child Abuse.

    “courts ruled his child was mature enough to decide on her treatment” ? ? ?

    That is patently insane . . . would the court rule my 13 yo could Drive, shop at a Liquor Store or Vote because he “Appeared” mature enough? Of course not . . .

    Most children abandon these fantasies . . . other’s have obvious Mental issues . . . performing Chemical Alterations & surgery on minors is the stuff of the Dr. Mengele class. The FACT that almost 40% of Post Op Trannies kill themselves should terrify any reasonable adult.

    But understand this is an Agenda . . . today they are Grooming your minor children in Public Schools while behind the scenes the pedo realm is working towards recognition & legal status.

Lawyer blasts Alberta sports facilities for vaccine passport policies

“It is unlawful for your facility to implement REP (Restriction Exemption Program) for youth activities,” From said in his letter to facilities.

Published

Lawyer Derek From has sent a stern warning to sport facility operators Monday saying they are breaching the law by requiring parents and kids 12 and over to show their vaccine status.

A constitutional lawyer for 10 years with the Canadian Constitution Foundation, From is now in private practice at an Airdrie law firm.

From was retained by a group of parents who have kids enrolled in youth sports programs in Calgary and the surrounding area.

“It is unlawful for your facility to implement REP (Restriction Exemption Program) for youth activities,” From said in his letter to facilities.

REP allows businesses to either choose to operate as usual if they implement a vaccine passport program or limit their attendance to one-third of their fire code capacity and abide by a number of other public health restrictions.

“Youth sports are supposed to be out of scope for these mandates according to the latest public health order,” From said in an interview with the Western Standard.

Last Thursday, public health order #43-2021 was rescinded due to “bad faith behaviour on the part of businesses offering youth activities and rogue municipal governments seeking to increase and stiffen the restrictions enacted by the Government of Alberta,” From states in the letter.

In its place, order #45-2021 was enacted making it clear that youth activities are out of the scope of REP.  

“This means that facilities that house youth sports are not allowed to use (vaccine) passports. They have to opt out of the passport program,” From said.

However, Calgary city council passed a bylaw that came into effect September 23 forcing businesses eligible for the REP to participate without choice including recreation facilities.

Calgary bylaw 65M2021 says “any person aged 12 years and older must show identification and either proof of vaccination, proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or a medical exemption from vaccine letter.”

“With (Mayor Naheed) Nenshi running interference on this issue, a lot of people were turned away from a number of facilities over the weekend,” From said.

“Essentially, they (city council) have left no one any choice in the municipality of Calgary including hockey rinks, even though it falls out of scope according to the province. Now a bunch of other surrounding communities are falling in line.”  

The legal letter demands these facilities stop enforcing any REP-related restrictions associated with youth physical, performance or recreational activities, and begin to follow the clear direction set out by the Alberta government regarding what falls in and out of scope for the REP.

“Youth physical activity, performance activity and recreational activity, where all participants are under the age of 18” is listed as outside of the purview of REP. This means that REP is not available for implementation in association with such activities,” the letter states.

“Thousands of parents are ready to have this fight for their kids across the province,” From said.

“If the letters aren’t enough to change the course for these facilities, we will start suing rinks and even the city (Calgary).”

From said he was sending the letter to Nenshi and Calgary council Monday.

Norway goes back to life as usual before COVID

Next to Denmark and Britain, Norway joins a growing number of countries who are lifting all COVID-related domestic restrictions.

Norway lifted all remaining COVID-19 restrictions this weekend in an effort to return to normal.

“Now the time has come to return to a normal daily life,” said Erna Solberg, Norways’s prime minister at a press conference.

Neither vaccination status nor a negative test result was required for citizens to enter nightclubs and restaurants which saw throngs of people heading to their favourite hangouts en masse.

Saturday marked the first time capacity limits were lifted in bars and restaurants in more than 500 days. Revellers young and old took to the streets with rowdy celebrations.

Next to Denmark and Britain, Norway joins a small but growing number of countries who are lifting all COVID-19-related domestic restrictions. Sports venues, bars, restaurants and other businesses will be permitted to return to full capacity and will no longer require social distancing or masking.

According to the Institute of Public Health, Norwegian vaccination rates sit around 76% for one dose and 67% are considered fully vaccinated.

Solberg still encouraged citizens to get vaccinated and said those who contract COVID-19 will still be required to self-isolate to avoid transmission.

“Even though everyday life is now back to normal for most people, the pandemic is not over,” Solberg said.

Although some restrictions will remain in place for those arriving in Norway from countries with higher rates of infection, travel restrictions will also be lifted, the government said.

“In short, we can now live as normal,” Solberg said.

Denmark was the first country in the European Union (EU) to lift all corona virus restrictions on September 10.

“The vaccines and the great efforts of all of Denmark’s citizens over such a long period are the foundation for why we are going strong,” Health Minister Magnus Heunicke said on Twitter just before the country opened up.

After seeing nearly three-quarters of adults fully vaccinated and experiencing low rates of infection and death in August, the Danish Health Authority declared the virus is “no longer a critical threat to society.”

Britain lifted much of its COVID-19-related restrictions over the summer.

As of September 23, more than 48 million people in the UK have received their fist does – 89% of those over 16 years old. A total 82% of the population or 44 million people 16 and older have been double jabbed.
