Chat News Today, May 17, 2019

Four academics [including two MSTH allies] from across Western Canada have written a letter in support of Medicine Hat’s site.

It was sent Thursday evening.

Doctor Rebecca Haines-Saah, assistant professor for the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary says they believe that had to speak up about the facts.

“I don’t see this letter as being a negative or an attack,” says Dr. Haines-Saah. “It’s really saying ‘here’s what the evidence says and we’d like to have some conversations about this, and we’d like to be resource to you.’”
