Our local MPP is uncertain about changes gender information on provincial licences.
The province recently announced it would no longer show a person’s gender on Health Cards as of June 13th.
Starting in 2017, people will also be given the option of having an ‘X’ on their drivers licences in the gender field, instead of ‘M’ or ‘F.’
Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Todd Smith says he does not think this is a priority for the province when faced with some many other issues.
The province says creating more gender inclusive documents goes hand-in-hand with its priority to grow the economy and create jobs.
