Dr Raiche, Calgary's only trans-focused psychiatrist agrees: "[It's] definitely not enough, I think it's merely scratching the surface in terms of volume."

"For anybody waiting for any medical service, three years is far too long of a wait time. And definitely when you factor in the vulnerable, at-risk nature of this population, that's way too long."
