Tanya Bloomfield is a tran advocate who moved to canada in 2006. she ran a business, raised money for lgbt initiatives, & chaired social & support groups. sadly, the transphobic Harper government refused to extend her immigration temporary pass and pushed her out today. She will arrive in the uk tonight unemployed, without her cats, without many of her belongings, and with no financial income. She has been abandonned by Canada. canada just lost a big piece of our heart and soul. this is exactly the type of person we should be attracting and retaining to canada. I am ashamed to be canadian today because of the negative and discriminatory transphobic treatment she was subjected to at the hands of the Harper government. Well Harper, I got news for ya, I am one Nova Scotian transsexual that you can't deport! So f*ck you and all your bigotism!
