Want health care decisions supported with research or evidence? You may need to email ‘Fred’

The Council of Canadians chairperson Maude Barlow and health care campaign Adrienne Silnicki’s  article recent changes to Health Canada’s library was published in today’s Star Phoenix.

The article states: “The federal Conservative government recently shut down health science libraries so abruptly that some Health Canada workers have resorted to hiding books and journals at unsanctioned libraries off-site, including one that was set up in an employee’s basement to save irreplaceable health research. The research library can now be accessed by emailing ‘Fred’.”

The article goes on to list other health care cuts of the Harper government and the continued attack on health care and research.
