    Just by the fact that you have a vagina (or have convinced yourself that you do), you can get up to an extra $6000!

    Let's see the same type of things for male nurses/social workers/porn stars...

    Not sure what message that sends to the guys trying to make it, but it can't be a good one.

    "be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or protected person;"

    What the heck does this mean? Non citizens can get grants if they are lesbian or something?

    "If you self-identify as a woman we'll give you special privileges."

    "The increase of trans people is only because they're finally not being oppressed by bigots, no one promotes this stuff."

    I support the idea of government programs to get more women into those kinds of careers.
    You are losing a lot of good workers if you don't fully recruit from the female population.
    Same goes for males in healthcare or education jobs.

    That being said I don't think this is the right way to do it. Seem unfair to all the guys doing the same job.

    Likely multi-faceted, but I see this:

    Encourage people to embrace a mental illness.

    Cite the increasing number of people with said mental illness as a reason for change.

    Promote your personal cause in the guise of helping the mess you yourself created.

    $8000 for men who undergo voluntary castration and agree to euthanasia at 60 to help with the old age pension crisis.

    Literally subsidizing the decision to be trans.

    Add in free (to the tranny, not the taxpayer) hormones and surgery and well, I don't see how that government could even claim to be neutral in this matter. Not that they would be, though.

    "I'm a woman. Now, pay me."

    Or maybe it's:

    "I'm a woman now. Pay me."

    I've had two female apprentices (both good trades people) and am seeing more and more women in the trades. Particularly electricians and welders.

    It's funny to see you righties soil your linens over this, when the Chinese government is simply urging their women to finally pay for their own drinks at bars.
