Scope and contentFile contains an individual presentation by Antonia Jack, patient of Dr. Dave Bridgeman, chiropractor in Whitehorse, Yukon. Jack describes her negative experiences with the health care system in attempting to be treated for back pain. Jack states that the policy for chiropractic help discriminates against Aboriginal people who need medical attention as soon as possible, not months later. A brief question-and-answer session with Georges Erasmus, Co-Chair, follows the presentation.
