Regina City Council to decide fate of conversion therapy in the city Wednesday

Regina City Council will renew debate Wednesday over a bylaw aimed at banning conversion therapy in the city.

Many delegates are once again scheduled to appear in front of council on Wednesday, including a significant number of faith leaders
