Alberta will reinstate funding for gender reassignment surgeries June 15, more than two years after delisting the operation as a cost saving measure.

The government cut funding for the operations in April 2009 when about 600 people were on a waiting list.

Of course the amount promised will only accomodate approximately 25 individuals per year (let me do the math for you, it would take at least 24 years to accomodate just those who were on a waiting list three years ago).
