Montreal Gazette publishes lies, creating unwarranted panic and putting people at risk.
Here’s an excerpt from an article by one Aaron Derfel:
Derfel depicts Montreal’s emergency rooms as extremely dangerous, crowded, COVID-infested places. Would anybody want to go to such a place, even if one were in pain? Obviously not.
Here’s the thing, though. My mom was at the Lakeshore Hospital ER in suburban Pointe-Claire yesterday. On the exact same day the article is describing. The ER was empty. My mom’s waiting time was one minute. She was admitted for appendicitis and had surgery. The place was clearly running below capacity. There were three patients in isolation for COVID. They were not in any way placed in the proximity to other patients. Of whom there were very few.
My mom is an immigrant, and she doesn’t have enough English to read Montreal Gazette. And that’s great because she hadn’t seen any of the lying stories that spread panic. As soon as she felt abdominal pain, she went to the ER. And now she is well.
But imagine how many people read this coverage, believe the lies and decide not to go to the ER, putting their lives at risk.
Shame on you, Aaron Derfel. You are a liar and a hack. You are also a bad human being.
