Huang et al. v. Vancouver School District 39 (Canada)

On October 31, three Chinese-Canadian parents sued Vancouver School District 39, claiming its bathroom policy offends “the rule of law” and fails to “consider morality, as it relates to public decency.” The policy allows transgender students to use bathroom and changing rooms at city schools that correspond to their chosen gender identity. In the new lawsuit in B.C. Supreme Court, lead plaintiff Xiaofeng Huang wants the bathroom policy quashed. They claim it offends their rights as parents, including expectations of “their children’s privacy and safety in washrooms and change rooms at school” and “of having accurate information about their children’s gender identity and expression at school.”
