Harriette Cunningham, a Comox transgender girl, and her family have made a formal request to remove gender from her birth certificate, which they hope would improve equality for transgender people across the province.  A lawyer for the Cunningham family said there is no precedent for such a request in British Columbia.  If the Vital Statistics Agency, which issues birth certificates in B.C., denies the request, the family plans to file a human rights complaint, said barbara findlay, the Cunninghams’ lawyer.
