In yesterday’s post I spoke about Justin Trudeau keeping true to his word. Today I will speak about one of those promises and the problem with imposing a time line. As someone who has been hospitalized for 3 months, I have had access to a lot of doctors. The doctors I have spoken with on the issue have all worked overseas at some point in their careers and have knowledge of rates of tuberculosis infection that are not being shared with the public and are very worriedabout rushing the intgration. Trudeau has mentioned using military bases to house the refugees for as long as a few weeks, which on the surface sounds good until you find out that it takes up 6 months to treat TB, which as many as 90% of refugees from Syria currently have.
Now, I am not suggesting that Canada refuses to take in these people, just that we slow down the rush to integrate them into society until they are medically cleared.
I would assume that Trudeau has much better access than I in regards to this information, so I wonder why the hurry. In the interest of keeping everyone safe, why not take the time required?
