Arrest warrant issued for Transwoman in Montreal “sex change” clinic Arson
May 21, 2016
Police have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in the arson attack on Dr. Pierre Brassard’s cosmetic surgery clinic. Brassard is the only surgeon in Canada who will perform the radical genital surgeries desired by some transgender people who believe the procedures will ease their dysphoria caused by wishing they had reproductive systems of the opposite sex. The men who keep Brassard in business call themselves “Brassard Beauties”. These complex surgeries have a high rate of complications, both acute and chronic, even in the best case scenario. For example, the majority of males who undergo “gender affirming” genital surgery will go on to experience chronic urinary tract infections for the rest of their lives.
On May 2nd a man carrying a machete, an ax, and a gas can entered the side door of the clinic after hours. He was witnessed by a worker who assumed he was a fellow employee who’d gotten locked out by the back dumpsters. The man rushed past him into the operating theatre and ignited the incendiary, which set off the sprinkler system, damaging clinic equipment and supplies. He left the premises before the fire department arrived. Personnel who remained in the building evacuated and no one was harmed. Over $700,000. in damage was caused, and surgeries were cancelled for two days until an alternate temporary facility was arranged. 
The transgender community described the incident as an “act of terror” against transgenders , likened to attacks by men on women’s reproductive health providers , and called for hate crime charges to be brought against the perpetrator. Egale, the Canadian Human Rights Trust, stated:
“On May 2nd, 2016, a man armed with a machete, axe, and gas can, stormed Canada’s only sex reassignment clinic in Montréal, and set it on fire.
This act of arson is a symbolic affront to Canada’s trans community, and nothing short of hate crime. The attack underlines the threat of violence that is endured by Canadian trans people on a daily basis, and affirms the continued need for positive change in our country’s public perception of trans people.” 
The suspect sought by police is Jayne Hellen Heideck, 42, of British Columbia, a transwoman and apparent  ex-patient of Brassard’s. He is charged with breaking and entering, arson by negligence, arson with disregard for human life, among other charges.
While the transgender community decried the lack of outrage that the “hate crime” received in the mainstream press and blogosphere, common sense led most sites, including this one, to suspect the perpetrator may be a member of the transgender community itself.
