A transgender teen initially banned from using the boys washroom at his Toronto-area high school has been told he can now use it freely. James Spencer, 16, was told Wednesday he could access the boys washroom at Clarke High School in Durham region following a meeting with school officials. The move was a reversal of an earlier decision by officials, who told the young teen to stop using the boys washroom because some students felt uncomfortable.
