“The name Canada comes from a St. Lawrence Iroquoian word, kanata, meaning “village” or “settlement”. In 1535, indigenous inhabitants of the present-day Quebec City region used the word to direct French explorer Jacques Cartier towards the village of Stadacona. Cartier later used the word Canada to refer not only to that particular village, but also the entire area subject to Donnacona (the chief at Stadacona); by 1545, European books and maps had begun referring to this region as Canada.” ( Origin: Wikipedia )
There is one internet site, the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance, who made the effort on having an in depth look into the transgender topic. I hope they will continue on the subject and update the articles with the time. Please visit their site, it’s absolutely worth passing by and STAYING.
