Doctors opposed to the government’s cuts to health care for refugee claimants confront a third cabinet minister.
Amateur Sport Minister Bal Gosal was speaking at a promotional event for the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto when he was interrupted by four doctors wearing their white coats who approached the stage yelling. “What about health care for refugees? What about medications for our patients?” yelled the protesters. “How can you look your cabinet colleagues in the face?” added Gary Bloch, who identified himself to reporters later in a scrum as a family physician at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. “Ask Minister Kenney why diabetics can’t get insulin,” another doctor added as Gosal stopped his remarks.
