Because... "Aboriginal"

If it was my child that got bumped off the transplant list... I'd be insane with rage...a wasted life
Saunders, 26, has been told she does not meet criteria set by the Trillium Gift of Life Network, the Ontario agency that manages organ transplants.
You know, the "criteria" that every other non-special human being in the province has to abide by. But, heck... tell that to Amnesty International.

So now, the question is... who doesn't get a liver because alcoholic "Indigenous advocate" Delilah Saunders goes to the head of the line?

Think I'm being dramatic?
Every week, 1.5 patients die on waiting lists for livers at Toronto General. Dr. Atul Humar, director of transplantation at the University Health Network, has said that up to 30 per cent of those on the waiting list for a liver typically die while waiting for a donor.

UPDATE: Special treatment for "special people"...
Thursday evening, the family got word from Toronto General Hospital that it wanted to see her for an assessment. Saunders’ aunt Barbara Coffey said she was sent by air ambulance to Toronto on Thursday evening.
CBC says this woman can't get a liver transplant "due to protocols"... not because she's a stone alcoholic who burned through her own organs by the time she hit her twenties.


UPDATE2: The power of the Great Spirit...

...transplant network caving in to pressure...
A spokesperson for Trillium has confirmed the agency plans to launch a pilot project to suspend the six-month requirement and provide transplants to almost 100 patients with alcohol-related liver disease.
The question now is, which 100 non-alcoholic persons will this "political correctness" sentence to death?


LAST WORD: In other death sentence news...
Environment Minister George Heyman says First Nations will still be allowed to hunt grizzlies for food, social or ceremonial reasons, or for treaty rights.
But, of course.
