Yet another aboriginal child...

...sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. The National Post, in it's journalistic wisdom, attempts to legitimise the fever dreams of a desperately ill 11 year-old child.

Tragically, the outcome... exactly as predicted by the wily white man's medical experts... well... she's dead.

So sad. So unnecessary.murder by political correctness

"When Makayla ended her chemotherapy treatments last May, she said it was because Jesus visited her in hospital and told her she was already healed."
Coincidentally, Makayla's parents are evangelical Christian pastors. We should move on, though... obviously, this tragedy can't be laid at the door of religion or culture. That wouldn't be Canadian.

CONSIDER THE LAW:
"It’s not such an ass as to provide a constitutional entitlement to the aromatherapy, wheatgrass enemas, acupuncture and naturopathic massage sessions offered to cancer sufferers at $18,000 a customer by the DIZZY WHITE PEOPLE at the notorious Hippocrates Health Institute of West Palm Beach, Florida."
Really, that's the culpable party here... the "dizzy white people" in Florida? Were these nefarious unstable caucasians relentlessly cold-calling random folk here in Brantford, Ontario? That seems unlikely. Could it be that Makayla's parents sought them out? Perish the thought.

What about the hundreds of members of the “Makayla Defence Force” who were prepared to "physically intervene" to prevent actual medical treatment? I thought assisting a suicide was a criminal offense in Canada.

A couple of questions... if Jesus had already zapped the cancer, why the wheatgrass enemas... (more to the point, is Canadian wheatgrass so sub-par that you wouldn't consider funnelling it up your nether parts?) I'm also curious whether the Canadian healthcare system ponied up for this cross border bowel cleansing. As for aboriginal rights, will there now be a Royal Commission on shaman based healthcare?

LAST WORD: Not a new problem
"The average death rate on reserves for the decade ending in 2002 was more than seven times the national average."
And...
"The rate of deaths from injuries is 3 to 4 times higher for Aboriginal children than for other children in Canada."

Half way off topic, but the death rate for children due to injuries on Hutterite colonies would be equal to the death rate for native children. There are certain groups the government and social workers just won't touch
