The Ex is a fair leading up to Canada’s Labour Day festivities. It is one of North America’s largest fairs and includes games, rides, and no shortage of things to do. The event draws large, diverse crowds so gender neutral bathrooms solve two problems: 1.) they make the event more inclusive for all people, regardless of gender identity and 2.) the lines for the bathrooms (especially the ladies room) likely won’t be as long.
“All portable washrooms will eventually be the same for the CNE,” Gage Knox, a Media Relations person for the events, told Buzzfeed. “All-gender washrooms makes for better flow and greater capacity.”
