In June 2020 Erin Brewer choked up as she concluded an hourlong interview with Canadian father Robert Hoogland. In violation of a court-imposed gag order, he spoke with Brewer about his opposition to his teenage daughter taking testosterone. “I’m feeling really sad right now that you could be put in jail because you’re standing up for your daughter,” Brewer said.
On March 16, Hoogland was jailed for contempt of court after the British Columbia attorney general issued an arrest for him. A judge on March 19 denied a petition for his release. He will remain imprisoned until April 12, the date of his trial, and faces up to five years in prison if convicted. From World Magazine.
