While attending the G20 summit in Bali, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau commemorated the occasion via Twitter, refusing to admit that not one trans person in Canada was killed, the Post Millennial reported.
Responding to a tweet from Canadian Parliament member Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the country’s New Democratic Party, one feminist pointed out that while transgender Brazilian male sex workers are the most afflicted by deadly hate crimes, plenty of Canadian women have been killed.
Who are you mourning Jagmeet? Brazilian prostitutes? No murdered "transgenders" in canada. Plenty of murdered women though.

Disinformation suggesting there is a transgender murder epidemic has led many to believe they are a highly compromised group, ostensibly justifying the demands on biological females to give up the safety of female-only spaces in order to cater to this allegedly marginalized group.
A transgender blogger known as Verity Ritchie wrote that many of the murders in the US that were ascribed to transphobia seemed, in fact, to be random acts of violence, or else they happened during sex-work situations or drug deals gone wrong.
Ritchie concluded that even with these few occurrences, transgender people were one of the safest demographics in the US.
“Not only have we been living in this fear, the same fear which told me I wouldn’t live to see 36, but we have been appropriating a violence which is not happening to us,” concluded Verity Ritchie.
Nonetheless, leftist leaders continue to spread the trans panicmongering in order to virtue-signal their way into scoring cheap political points.
Sadiq Kahn, the mayor of London and a member of the U.K. Labour Party, also marked the occasion by making a statement against bigotry and violence, without naming any particular victims.
For those questioning the scale of abuse towards trans people:
The no. of hate crimes against transgender people increased by 56% last year
41% of trans people have experienced a hate crime in the last 12 months
Transphobia is abhorrent. We must all speak out to stamp it out.

“On Transgender Day of Remembrance, we honour the lives taken by anti-trans hate crimes,” Kahn said.
“We stand in solidarity with London’s trans and gender non-conforming communities,” he continued. “And we vow to do everything we can to protect trans rights.”
When challenged by his Twitter followers, who pointed out that the transgender population is just about the safest demographic there is, Kahn responded by spouting off statistics about increasing hate crimes without saying if any trans-identifying people had actually been killed.
4/ Words – about 85% of those 4,355 'hate crimes' are Public Order ‘causing alarm, distress etc.’ offences, or harassment/stalking offences (frequently via social media). In most instances someone has simply said something or written something that someone else didn't like.
