Nightmare in Thunder Bay

Not a full blog this time.  But for those of you who don’t follow me on twitter (@drmsgandhi), I just wanted to bring your attention to two blogs.  Both deal with the deteriorating situation in Thunder Bay where a union (in this case Unifor) has, as a result of their actions, denied health care to over a 1000 patients.  Many of these patients were elderly, and many had waited months for a specialist appointment.

The first blog is by the President of the Ontario Medical Association, Dr. Nadia Alam, and can be read here.

The second is by the Past President of the Ontario Medical Association, Dr. Shawn Whatley, and it can be found here.

I encourage you to read both of them.
