The biggest Canadian fair does not care where people pee


A gender-inclusive bathroom sign in the biggest national fair in Canada shows their trans-supportive policy . The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) in Toronto adopted a new bathroom sign which reads ‘We don’t care’. As well as the usual rides, food stalls and shopping events, general manager of CNE, Virginia Ludy, said the signs had received a great deal of praise. She said the event was looking for something that reflected the new bathroom policy and discovering the signs, made by artist Peregrine Honig, it was agreed they’d work perfectly. “We thought it said exactly what we wanted to say. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, you can use this washroom,” she claimed.

As for the design of restrooms Ludy says that they can be used by anybody anytime. She added that the amount of positive feedbacks on the sign in social media surprised her a lot: I think that we, as an event, want to be fair to everybody and so if we can design washrooms that are a little bit more private and accommodating for our customers, that don’t make them uncomfortable because of the facilities they think they should be using or not using, or how the public will react, then that’s a good thing.”
