Provincial funding for sex-change operations will be one of the topics discussed at this weekend's Young Liberals annual meeting in Halifax.And then they bash the tax-free savings account proposal, arguing that an average middle-class Canadian has no money to put aside. Of course we have little or no money left for savings, since a huge chunk of our tax dollars is already being wasted on funding special interest groups. But that's surely not enough wasteful spendings for the Nova Scotia Young Liberals.
Resolution 11 says transsexualism is a congenital birth condition where there is a mismatch between the physical outward appearance of a person's gender and his or her inner perception.
"Other congenital birth conditions, such as limb malformation, heart and nervous system defects and genetic disorders such as a predisposition to a heart attack or heart disease, are currently covered under the Nova Scotia health-care system," so tax dollars should be used for "gender reassignment surgery for transsexual individuals, along with pre- and post-surgery care and counseling," says the resolution.
In British Columbia, the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal ruled the health services ministry had to pay $30,000 for previous operations done in California on a woman wishing to change her gender, plus another $93,028 to complete the gender-reassignment surgery.

Young Liberals of Nova Scotia believe you do; and if you don't - then you better get some, cause they want your tax dollars to go towards funding sex-change surgeries. And of course, the quasi-judicial "human rights" tribunals are way ahead of them.
