Health system neglects northern patients by design: Doctor

Nick Purdon is a reporter at CBC's The National, where Leonardo Palleja is a producer and videographer. They teamed with videoproducer Brenda Witmer to shed light on the lack of health care in Northern Ontario, where a 100-bed facility in Sioux Lookout serves an area in Northern Ontario the size of France. It's a system Dr. Mike Kirlew says is designed to harm Indigenous people, their plight chronicled by CBC Television.
