These disputes prevent First Nations from accessing health care at the best of times.
Go to the blogsite, read the whole post, (which includes a news item from Manitoba) and please do as the author requested: write to your MP even if she or he is not a member of Stephen Harper's government.
The CBC also has the news item.
