Canadian Councillor Representing Ottawa
Wants Military To Conduct Vaccinations
An Ottawa city councillor wants to call in the Armed Forces to
help conduct swine flu vaccinations.
Councillor Bob Monette said Thursday
he has written to federal Health Minister Leona
Aglukkaq asking if doctors, nurses and medics from the
Canadian Forces could be deployed in cities across Canada
to help with the H1N1 vaccinations.
Monette said the idea came to him after speaking with a constituent
who's a member of the Forces.
"Why not think of all the possibilities?" Monette said.
"This was one more possibility that I found was worthwhile
looking into, and let's see if anything comes from it. If we can
get one or two doctors, a nurse, to help out, then it's worthwhile,"
Ottawa-Orleans MP Royal Galipeau has endorsed Monette's idea.
He said he's also written to the health minister and to the minister
