Altering one's physical gender would only seem a lark to those who haven't met Edwards. There was a time when even the Alberta government saw it that way.
Predictably, some Albertans citing other unfunded, vital treatments have taken out their frustrations on the province's transsexuals.
Their bitterness is misdirected.
But it's a distraction no doubt welcomed by a government whose mismanagement of the health-care system lurches between grim and gruesome.
No group of people should be subject to being "thrown under the bus" politically.
