There’s a guy in Alberta, Canada who recently legally changed his gender to female . . . so he could save about $840-a-year on car insurance. And in Alberta, all it takes to legally change your gender is a doctor’s note.
There’s a man in Alberta, Canada who’s only been identified as “David” . . . and he just changed his gender to female. But it was only for one reason: To save money on car insurance.
Anyway, David says they found that they’d save about $840-a-year on car insurance by being a woman, so they went for it.
It’s not that easy, though. Even though you can legally change your gender in Alberta with just a doctor’s note, David has to now legitimately live as a woman.
At first, David bragged about the process, quote, “I am now a woman. I now pay [$840] less for auto insurance. I won. The end.”
But now that the story is getting attention and David’s probably a little worried about insurance fraud, they’re saying, quote, “I didn’t legally change my sex solely for cheaper auto insurance, though that was and is a big factor for me.”
