A number of Canadian superstars have signed an open letter against anti-trans legislation in Canada.

The signatories to the letter, written by The Tegan and Sara Foundation, include Neil Young, Alanis Morissette, Elliot Page, k.d. lang, Sarah McLachlan, Carly Rae Jepsen.

More than 400 of Canada’s well-known musicians and entertainers have signed the letter.

The letter, led by indie pop siblings Tegan and Sara Quin, call on Canadian communities and local and national policymakers to put a stop to “this concerning surge in anti-trans policy.”

It accuses far right groups of acting for “people in power to retain that power at the expense of the most marginalized among us.”

In Alberta, premier Danielle Smith has targeted transgender youth with proposed bans on hormonal treatment, puberty blockers and gender-confirmation surgery.

Months before, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan announced that they will require parental consent before schools can honor the chosen names and pronouns of gender-diverse children under 16.

The artists urged the government to “never put themselves between parents, their kids, and evidence-based healthcare and supports.”
