City Council votes to ban conversion therapy

February 10, 2020

Lethbridge City Council voted today to direct administration to draft a bylaw to ban the practice of conversion therapy in the city.

The motion, brought forward by Acting Mayor Jeff Carlson and Councillor Rob Miyashiro, spoke to the city being a welcoming and open community for all. During discussion of the official business resolution, a motion was approved in a -4 vote to split the resolution into two parts. This motion was proposed by Councillor's Hyggen and Mauro.

Administration is set to draft the bylaw for no later than June 1.
