  Federal Liberals revive bill that seeks to outlaw forced LGBTQ conversion therapy OTTAWA — The federal Liberals have reintroduced a bill that would ban forcing children or adults to undergo therapy aimed at altering their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Diversity Minister Bardish Chagger, who put the bill forward in the House of Commons Thursday, said choosing to reintroduce the effort to ban so-called conversion therapy just days into the new parliamentary session sends a strong signal.

  Free votes for Conservative MPs on assisted dying, conversion therapy ban: O'Toole OTTAWA — Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole promised free votes for his MPs Wednesday on two pieces of legislation that are a source of tension within the party.
