Northam’s Wife Handed Out Cotton To Black Students As Lesson On Slavery

A 14-year-old transgender boy has the capacity to consent to his own medical treatments and should be allowed to proceed with hormone injections to help transition from a female to a male body without delay, a B.C. Supreme Court judge has ruled.
