Premier Danielle Smith defends Alberta's ban on child sex changes

"One of the most sacred responsibilities that we hold as parents, as teachers, as elected leaders, as community leaders is to nurture and guide children as they grow into adulthood"

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith took to the stage at the Canada Strong and Free Networking Conference in Ottawa on Friday to discuss her policies and leadership, followed by a Q & A led by Andrew Lawton.

"Hope and renewal are in the air, and I'm not just talking about the beautiful spring," Smith said. "The winds of change are blowing, and I think we can all feel it, can't we?" she said.

One topic she addressed was Alberta's approach to child sex changes, which includes banning "top and bottom" gender reassignment surgeries for anyone under 17, and those under 15 will be barred from receiving puberty blockers and hormone therapies for the purpose of gender reassignment.

"First and foremost I want to emphasize that these policies are founded on principles of love and respect for every individual regardless of their gender identity."

"One of the most sacred responsibilities that we hold as parents, as teachers, as elected leaders, as community leaders is to nurture and guide children as they grow into adulthood," she said.

Speaking to Lawton on the topic of her approach to child sex changes, she said "The left says they believe in science. This is what science looks like."

When asked about protecting single sex spaces. "I think the issue is modesty. If you have not been fully transitioned, then you shouldn't be exposing yourself in female-only spaces."

On another topic, Smith said that NDP and Liberal policies "are policies that are all about limiting the potential of people." She gave the carbon tax as an example, mentioning that it is a sin tax on productivity.

"Limiting what you can do, what you can buy, what you can drive, what you can produce, what you can keep for yourself, what you can dream of accomplishing, that is what they're doing in the Liberal-NDP coalition."

Smith also took aim at Justin Trudeau. "My message to Ottawa is that federal politicians—and the Prime Minister in particular—should do HIS job and stop trying to do MY job."

"There is no shortage of things the Prime Minister can do. It's not a boring job! So when you see in Alberta that we are going to take a posture more like Quebec which is 'no thank you, we don't need your policy advice on school lunch programs, on pharmacare, on dental care.' That is, just give us the money and trust that we'll be able to deliver on this."
