Calgary city councillors voted on Monday to ban the controversial practice of conversion therapy.

A committee recommended to city council earlier this month that a bylaw should be passed prohibiting conversion therapy as a business. The bylaw would also ban advertising, and come with a possible fine of $10,000 and a year-long prison term.

“Conversion therapy means a practice, treatment or service designed to change, repress or discourage a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression or to repress or reduce non-heterosexual attraction or sexual behaviour. For greater certainty, this definition does not include a practice, treatment or service that relates (a) to a person’s social, medical or legal gender transition; or (b) to a person’s non-judgmental exploration and acceptance of their identity or development.”

Banning it is a good thing.

Still not sure what it means.  Does it limit the ability to transition?

It's basically trying to change a person so they will stop wanting to transition. - E

It means some people think they can "cure" a person of being transgender or gay.  This law bans that harmful practice in Calgary.

This would've been very useful to me sixteen years ago.

Better late than never.
