Canadian Doctors for Refugee Care challenge Minister of Citizenship and Immigration to a public debate

Fed up with the continuous stream of federal government misinformation on refugee health policy and Minister Alexander’s repeated attacks on government critics, Canadian Doctors for Refugee Care is challenging Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander to a public debate. The Minister can choose the time and location of such a debate.

Canadian Doctors for Refugee Care has never been given an opportunity to meet with senior government officials despite numerous requests. “All we want is a chance to respectfully and rationally discuss the federal government’s refugee health policy,” said Dr. Meb Rashid, medical director of the Crossroads Clinic at Women's College Hospital. “We have witnessed the devastating impact of these cuts on the frontlines and fear the federal government’s ongoing pigheadedness could lead to tragic consequences.”
