There was no medical crisis (?)

There was an interesting interview on As It Happens last night in which Dr. Tom Perry, a physician and UBC prof, pointed out that, contrary to what Gary Lunn is saying, no lives were in danger as a result of the isotope shortage. Dr. Perry indicated that a shortage of this sort might hinder some medical diagnoses, but that doctors had other means to reach those diagnoses.

In this light, Lunn’s firing of Linda Keen seems that much more political, much more about skirting government embarrassment.
