Atikamekw woman files complaint over doctor’s alleged racist comment

taanshinamee:

After the surgery, Bosum said the doctor asked how she got to Montreal and who paid for the trip.

Bosum told her that Aboriginal Affairs Canada pays for transportation and items such as medication.

She said she was shocked by the doctor’s response.

“‘I guess that’s why we pay our bloody taxes.’ She said it just like that,” Bosum said.
