June 17 Toronto John Argue […]




June 17 Toronto John Argue, representing CGRO and GATE (Toronto), presented the brief "The Homosexual Minority in Ontario" to the review committee of the OHRC. The committee had been established to hear proposals for changes to the Ontario Human Rights Code. The brief documented cases of discrimination in support of its principal recommendation, the amendment of the code to include "sexual orientation." It had been mailed to the OHRC and to all Ontario MPPs earlier in the year. This was just one of more than forty similar briefs that were submitted to the committee throughout 1976 and early 1977.
