    I see the reasoning behind this, and I think that is a good thing, but I am wondering if this may have a down side!

    Province already issuing health cards that no longer display information about a person’s sex

    Ontario is introducing gender-neutral driver’s licences and health cards.
    Beginning in early 2017, drivers will be able to select X, instead of an M for male or F for female, for their licences.

    This month the province started issuing health cards that no longer display information about a person’s sex on the front of the card.

    Those who want a new health card without the sex identifier before their regular renewal date can obtain one immediately through ServiceOntario at no cost.

    The Liberal government said it is making the changes “to ensure the fair, ethical and equitable treatment of people with trans and non-binary gender identity.”

    Ontario will also launch public consultations this summer to develop policies on how the government collects, uses and displays sex and gender information on government forms and products.
