I happened to fire up Twitter and was checking out the Toronto trends and noticed a number of trending items from the Ontario Conservative Party.
I dug around a number of places and finally landed on this.

As could be predicted, reaction from others across the province was quick and predictable.
I’m appalled that the Ford Conservatives would endorse a resolution that attacks trans people and their rights. #TransRightsAreHumanRights in Ontario, and New Democrats stand with LGBTQ people against this dangerous position that drags our province backwards. #TransAwarenessWeek

Shocked that Doug Ford’s PC Party would pass such a hateful resolution. It is dangerous, reckless and irresponsible for a political party to endorse discrimination and tell people that how they identify themselves is not real. #onpoli #PCPO2018 #TransAwarenessWeek pic.twitter.com/87renPQvxn

The transphobic and regressive proposed Resolution R4 the PC Party passed today endangers the trans community. #OSSTF will always stand up for our trans students and their rights. We will fight to ensure they are recognized and are safe and included in our schools. #onted #onpoli

It doesn’t take much energy to find a whole slew of people with similar reactions.
I thought that we were in a time of consultation over this and other topics. The consultation website indicates that it continues to December 15. No matter where you stand on this issue, having your voice added to the consultation is now even more important.
Make a point of answering the consultation and help shape Ontario.
