Justin Trudeau To Install Tampon Dispensers In Men’s Bathrooms

via Global News

The Canadian Labour Code was recently amended to require all federally regulated employers to provide free menstrual products in all employee bathrooms.

The change aims to ensure unrestricted access to these products for all employees, regardless of gender identity.

The new policy, which includes federal public service departments, crown corporations, banks, airports, and train yards, resulted from negotiations with activist groups and is intended to support health, productivity, and reduce stigma.

“Menstrual products must be in all toilet rooms, regardless of their marked genders,” Canada’s Employment and Social Development website reads.

“This means that every female-identified, male-identified and all gender toilet rooms will need to have menstrual products.”

“Unrestricted access to menstrual products better protects menstruating employees and makes sure that they feel safe to use the toilet room that best reflects their gender.”

While some see this as a step towards inclusivity, others have criticized the policy, questioning its implications and the government’s priorities in light of broader societal challenges.

“Back in the day, when only women menstruated, we had to pay for our own products,” former Canadian Conservative senator Linda Frum quipped.

“But now that men menstruate too, these products, as of this week, are mandated to be free in all Men’s washrooms in all federal workplaces, including Parliament Hill – where this photo was taken today.”

“Can confirm that your tax dollars now provide free tampons in the Parliament of Canada mens’ washrooms. For ’employees who menstruate,'” House of Commons X account posted.

“They’re also going to build dispensers for all the tampons which won’t be used since 1) men don’t menstruate & 2) they are just going to bring them home to their wives for free.”
