COURT FILE NUMBER KBG-RG-01978-2023
14 September 2023
I am the Executive Director and one of the founding members of Gender Dysphoria Alliance (“GDA”), one of the proposed interveners in the Notice of Joint Application For Leave to Intervene, and as such, have personal knowledge of the matters and facts herein deposed to, except where stated to be on information and belief, and where so stated I verily believe the same to be true. [...] As a group of members of the gender dysphoric community (inclusively those of the non- transition, pre-transition, mid-transition, post-transition, and de-transitioned states of surgical and hormonal intervention) we are concerned about the direction that gender medicine and activism has taken. [...] GDA is interested in, and applies to intervene in this proceeding because of the significant implications this case has for the rights of hundreds of thousands of parents/guardians across Saskatchewan and its resulting persuasive implications to millions of parents and children across Canada. [...] As members of the gender dysphoric community who are concerned about the direction that gender medicine and activism has taken, GDA takes a significant interest in the outcome of this matter. [...] This insight and experience will assist in providing the Court with a useful perspective on the implications of the legal issues at stake in the matter.
