“’We fully support and are immensely proud of Hannah’s decision to transition, and hope the country joins us in celebrating this moment,’” the caption reads.

“We can confirm that the CBC did not publish this article,” Kerry Kelly, a CBC spokesperson, told Check Your Fact in an email. “We are aware of a number of recently published images of false stories attributed to CBC News and are working with social media providers to flag and remove these false and inflammatory manipulated images.
