Liberal leader Dominique Anglade offered her condolences to the parents of the deceased. Really my parent’s heart sank as I read this dramatic news, she wrote in a Twitter post.

The actress Salomé Corbo remembers the time when the deceased came to see her father at the Conservatory.
You could hear her little ones on the marble. It brightened up my days between rehearsals of Racine’s tragedies. Today Rosine has become a tragedy, contemporary and abominable, writes Mrs. Corbo.

In December, due to a significant increase in hospitalizations related to COVID-19, the Quebec government set in motion its load shedding plan and began to postpone part or all of semi-urgent and non-urgent operations, colon cancer screening interventions, kidney transplants from living donors, except in pediatrics, and consultations in specialized outpatient clinics.

  1. It’s sad how no one talks about the impact these extreme covid measures have on critical surgeries. I was personally impacted by cancer and needed surgery and I was told I had to be placed on a wait list. I was lucky enough on the timing as there was a cancellation during the summer while covid restrictions weren’t as strict and had my surgery performed. But this really speaks to me and I feel for this woman as no one talks about the critical medical care people need and don’t get due to covid. I thought one life is too many to risk but clearly the lives of the people effected by other conditions other then covid don’t matter as much and are put on waiting lists. And the number being 140,000 or more is not significant enough to address. If these were covid patients there would be outrage and lockdowns but because they are other diseases such as cancer that is clearly more dangerous and life threatening it doesn’t matter. So sad and disappointing. Any life is too many and not getting medical care that is your basic right because your disease is not the popular one is not right.
