Canada's oldest rape crisis centre stripped of city funding for refusing to accept trans women 


The centre maintains that there is an essential experience that comes from being born in the body of a woman that shapes some of its core services, but said it would see to the safety of anyone who calls its crisis line.

“Transgender people deserve and must live in safety and have the equal rights and opportunities that are promised to us all. When it comes to our services, we have a collective commitment to see to the safety anyone who calls our crisis line, including transgender people,” the centre said in a statement.

But it went: “The fact that we are born female and raised as girls to adulthood as women shapes our lives in profound ways… And from that place, in a woman-only space, with other women, who have the shared experience of being born without a choice to the oppressed class of women we come together to organize and strategize our resistance and our fight for women’s liberation.”
