If you haven't heard about Minna, a Canadian woman with ALS who has been denied basic care, please read her story as told by a journalist.

As I know from reading Elizabeth's blog, there seem to be few checks on abuses in home health care in Canada.
Let's take a few minutes and help rectify the situation for everyone.
Why is she not receiving care? She made a complaint that the nurses were not following physician orders. So the agency is denying her care and sending a cautionary message to people with disabilities that they don't have a right to free speech or protest. Want to speak up? Think again, the Canadian health care system seems to say.
