Trudeau’s New Policy Forces Men’s Bathrooms In Parliament To Stock Tampons

 Men’s bathrooms in Canada’s Parliament will be stocked with tampons and other feminine hygiene products — at no cost to those who choose to take them — thanks to a new policy championed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The new policy, according to a report published by The New York Post on Tuesday, extends to “all federal workplaces” — from military installations and government offices to airports — and mandates that feminine hygiene products be made available in every restroom, regardless of the gender symbol on the door.

Former Canadian Sen. Linda Frum, a conservative, shared a photo of the products on her X account, along with the comment, “Back in the day, when only women menstruated we had to pay for our own products. But now that men menstruate too, these products, as of this week, are mandated to be free in all Men’s washrooms in all federal workplaces including Parliament Hill —where this photo was taken today.”

Another account, @HoCStaffer, confirmed the news and shared a photo of the prescribed policy, which identified menstrual products as a “basic necessity” and suggested that providing such products for free would “reduce the stigma often associated with menstruation.”

“Can confirm that your tax dollars now provide free tampons in the Parliament of Canada mens’ washrooms. For “employees who menstruate.”

“They’re also going to build dispensers for all the tampons which won’t be used since 1) men don’t menstruate & 2)they are just going to bring them home to their wives for free,” @HoCStaffer continued.


The stated reason for the policy was to “create healthier and more inclusive workplaces for employees who menstruate” and to ensure that “employees feel safe to use the washroom that best reflects their gender,” and was supposed to be fully implemented as of December 15, 2023.
