Agree or Disagree: Danielle Smith on funding sex reassignment surgery.


Danielle Smith, leader of the Wildrose Alliance Party was interviewed this week on a show called I Dig Your Girlfriend. In the interview, she stated that she would support funding sex-change operations.

I’ll rewrite this paragraph again.

 This is the same Wildrose that had Allen Hunsperger in it? This is the same Wildrose, some Albertans were quite scared of?  Yes that one.
 
Just to be clear, this is not an expected policy change for the Wildrose. As a mater of fact, it would quite likely  too be rejected. But it is now out there for discussion. And it’s expected to be a robust debate.

She also wrote a column in the Calgary Sun which you can read here.  http://www.calgarysun.com/2012/07/25/smith-wildrose-isnt-afraid-of-robust-debate
 
I have been quietly following the discussion, and I must admit I find this odd. Danielle Smith said last year that they would not get involved in discussions like this. Now it seems that is what they are known for
 
Last year, we did discuss this idea of government funding sex reassignment surgery. I’m sure you have an opinion on that. It was interesting to see who and how this was handled. It was also interesting to read the response from the party and others.
 
So, what do you think of how this was apporached. How people responded? And do you have an opinion if this something the government, provincial and federal, should be involved in?
