full scale government cover up regarding patient deaths in Alberta hospitals.
According to Mr. Sherman, he alleged that he has received information that the province has paid millions of dollars to Alberta doctors in an attempt to cover up cancer patient deaths. He goes so far as to claim that the government actually has two sets of accounting books, one that is public and a separate one containing the payout information to local doctors. This story seems absolutely outrageous, as I find it hard to believe that a full fledged mafia style conspiracy of this magnitude could possible be kept quiet for so long. The possibility that hundreds of doctors and medical professionals could possibly take "hush money" to cover up medial information is mind boggling.
I would love to see what concrete proof Mr. Sherman has on this matter and if he will actually bring it forward to share with Albertans. I find it highly unprofessional to make these kind of allegations without proof, especially while hiding behind a thin veil of MLA privilege. This smacks of a weak attempt to stay in the media spotlight he appears to crave lately and it really is a classic case of "Jumping the Shark", and I find it highly offensive.
I actually felt sorry for this man in the fall when it appeared that the PC government was attacking his mental state and credibility. After this latest episode, I think that I will reserve final judgement pending what Mr. Sherman brings forward as solid proof of his accusations. Seeing as he did not share this with the media at the time, I doubt that he has any.
