How my family hit a roadblock in accessing medical records

How my family hit a roadblock in accessing medical records Canada’s healthcare system has been a source of national pride for as long as I can remember — a view that was shattered following my experience as a patient advocate during my late father Henry’s cancer journey. The depths of perversity were made apparent to me when I was charged over $1,000 to access my father’s medical records, bringing to light a serious, long-term, systemic problem with access to medical information in Ontario. After much effort and hardship, my father’s medical file was released for $40, but not before the hospital updated its online fee policy Anyone trying to obtain a large electronic medical file in the future will be forced to pay an exorbitant

President Trump has made more than 12,000 false or misleading statements during fewer than 1,000 days in office and has insulted hundreds of people, entire countries and our collective intelligence. When confronted with unpleasant truths about himself, however, he wigs out, according to The Post’s reporting.

Damien Cox: Young king Felix is already the McDavid of Canadian men’s tennis

Damien Cox: Young king Felix is already the McDavid of Canadian men’s tennis In this age when everybody wants you to believe this kid or that kid is the next great player in their sport, it really is a cool thing when an athlete hyped in his or her early teenage years turns out to be the real deal. For Canadians, it was like that with Connor McDavid. R.J. Barrett, it would appear, is headed down that path. For Canadian baseball fans, they’re seeing it with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and maybe Bo Bichette, too. Hype realized is something special. Which brings us to Félix Auger-Aliassime, the darling of the Rogers Cup in his hometown of Montreal this week.

Trump said there were “very fine” people on both sides in Charlottesville, accused a judge of Mexican heritage of being unable to do his job, calls African and Caribbean nations “s---hole countries” and says he prefers immigrants from lily-white Norway. He told four nonwhite congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from, regularly insults the intelligence of African Americans and has parroted white nationalist rhetoric (“invasion”). But he is upset that people (51 percent, according to one poll) think he is a racist.

Don’t tell him, but the president who has racked up a deficit of “$119.7 billion, good for a 27% increase over a year ago, according to government figures released Monday,” might be called “fiscally irresponsible” (oh my!) by some.

Trump might be troubled to know that after years of excusing Russia’s attack on our democracy and those of other Western countries, and after taking Russian President Vladimir Putin’s word over that of the U.S. intelligence community, people are calling him a “patsy” or a “poodle” for Putin. The nerve!

There seems to be no end to the habit of calling Trump names for things he actually does. Insulting women, intimating that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) would trade sex for campaign contributions, and accumulating allegations of sexual assault? Darn if people don’t call Trump a “misogynist.”

Trump brags that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un likes him and sends him beautiful letters. And people call him “gullible”?!

Trump denies climate change, and people go and call him “anti-science” or an “ignoramus.” He takes hours of “executive time,” has made about 200 trips to his golf properties since taking office, has days on end with no public events and doesn’t read his intelligence briefing (or much of anything else), only to have people call him “lazy.” He refuses to dissolve his business holdings, enriches himself in office and receives foreign emoluments, yet people have the nerve to call him “corrupt.”

Joe Oliver: Here’s a truth few dare to utter: Canada will benefit from climate change

Joe Oliver: Here’s a truth few dare to utter: Canada will benefit from climate change By Joe Oliver Why should Canada fight climate change? Finally, someone proclaimed an obvious truth that few dare to utter publicly. According to Moody’s Analytics, Canada will benefit from climate change. Although it will shock many, this forecast should surprise no one. Canada is a very large, cold country, with 90 per cent of its population huddled within 100 miles of its southern border and an enormous agricultural potential if the land warms up.

Trump attacks the rule of law, the First Amendment, the separation of powers and the courts; meanies accuse him of being “anti-democratic” or “authoritarian.” Trump hires a slew of incompetent and ethically challenged advisers, many of whom he has to fire; the media have the gall to say his presidency is “chaotic.”

Trump changes policy by tweet and gets dubbed “impulsive,” reverses himself and gets called “erratic.” He approves a family separation policy and refuses to provide safe and sanitary conditions for asylum seekers, only to be called “cruel” or “inhumane.” Will the attacks on Trump never cease?!

Trump, commander in chief and president of the world’s only superpower, thinks he is the world’s most picked-upon person. The man who victimizes others insists that he is the biggest victim of all. And the greatest indignity? His critics (sometimes a majority of Americans) keep calling him racist and misogynistic, fiscally irresponsible, lazy, corrupt, authoritarian, impulsive and erratic based on his racist and misogynistic, fiscally irresponsible, lazy, corrupt, authoritarian, impulsive and erratic rhetoric and actions. The unfairness of it all!
