A Vancouver transgender activist won't be filing a complaint against a female-only pharmacy that didn't fill her prescription.
In a statement issued to the media today (July 16), Jamie Lee Hamilton stated that after a meeting with Lu's pharmacy representatives, she has concluded that a complaint to the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia at this point would be "counter-productive".
Hamilton's statement appears below:
Local Activists Meet with Lu's Pharmacy
Today July 16, 2009, local activists Raigen D Angelo, Sadie Kuehn and Jamie Lee Hamilton met with Lu's Pharmacy representatives.
The 2 hour meeting went well and all parties have agreed to a second meeting to be held within seven days.
It was unanimously agreed that no particulars of the meeting would be discussed with the media and everyone involved in this historic first meeting have agreed that any legal challenges or official complaints to the BC College of Pharmacists at this point would be counter-productive.
The Vancouver Women's Health Collective which operates Lu's will be speaking to collective members and everyone is hopeful that an acceptable resolve will be forthcoming soon.
