I'm against any and all criminalization of speech, but this bill is not as concerning as the headline makes it out to be.

It literally just adds "gender identity and gender expression" to the list of protected groups in already existing laws (Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code).

If you don't believe me, here's the full text of the bill, with changes underlined. Anything not underlined is already existing law and has been for many years.

You can take issue with the existing laws - and I take huge issue with them too - but the particular proposed bill being discussed is very non-concerning in and of itself. Don't let your justified anger against SJWs cloud your judgment. We should be better than that.

"sexual orientation" is already in there, that should already cover trans people?

No, sexual orientation is who you're attracted to. You can be trans and be attracted to either or both sexes.
