A note from Chief Commissioner Marie-Claude Landry, CHRC

April 27, 2017

Dear Miss Lowthian-Rickert:

On behalf of everyone here at the Canadian Human Rights Commission, I would like to personally thank you for allowing us to share your powerful story in our 2016 Annual Report to Parliament.  It is my honour to present you with your very own keepsake copy to share with friends and family.

Your story has captivated my heart, and the hearts of everyone at the Commission.  You were such an important part of our 2016 year!

I want to thank you, Charlie, for being so gracious and generous in sharing your story.  It is thanks to you that we are able to keep shedding light on the very important issue of trans rights in Canada.  I know your story will inspire people to tell their own story, and to keep this important conversation going across Canada.

On behalf of the Canadian Human Rights Commission, thank you again Charlie.  Keep telling your story, keep being you.  I can’t wait to see where life takes you next!  Wherever that is, we’ll all be cheering for you.

Yours sincerely,

Marie-Claude Landry, Ad. E.
