The disciplinary hearing of British Columbia nurse Amy Hamm, who is being investigated for allegedly transphobic off-duty activity such as putting up a billboard saying “I love JK Rowling”, reconvened Tuesday with the continued cross-examination of Dr. Greta Bauer, an expert witness for the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM).

During the second day of her cross-examination, Bauer, a Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, stated that she believes it is transphobic to question the practice of doctors performing experimental sex changes on minors, arguing that interventions such as puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones are necessary medical care recommended by a range of medical groups.
