New Transgender Inclusive Policy from Hockey Canada

Hockey Canada has adopted a new inclusive policy that will help prevent discrimination against transgender minor hockey players. 17 year old Jesse Thompson filed a complaint against Hockey Canada over a year ago after having been kicked out of the boys dressing room because he was a trans boy. I think Hockey Canada should have moved to resolve this issue in a more timely manner, but the end result is what matters I guess.
Congrats to Jesse for standing up for his rights and for forcing Hockey Canada into a more progressive, more inclusive policy. Hockey is for Everyone!
