Position of St. John in the Wilderness Bright’s Grove in Bill C-6, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (conversion therapy) 

We recognize the proposed Bill C-6 as an important step in protecting Canadians from the damaging effects of conversion therapy and strongly encourage the passing of this important legislation.

The following three letters outline our position as well as some of the controversy in Sarnia-Lambton which caused us to explicitly state our position here.  The letters are from our Wardens to our parish and to our Member of Parliament, and the position of The Venerable Linda Nicholls, Primate of The Anglican Church of Canada.
