The most Canadian of all stories

A couple of days ago, a nurse was charged with murdering 8 people in the last 7 years in a nursing home and in CAMH – University of Toronto Mental Hospital. The canadian element here is that this was known to some doctor but never reported. On the Tee-Vee, an official of some sort explained that Canada is such a progressive free country that doctors have an obligation not to disclose confidential information. That’s obviously a crap: confidentiality is related only to their patients. But there are other rules preventing reporting the crimes of the co-workers.

Why? What this is all about? I thought for a few moments and… aha, I know why! What would happen if people could report the crimes of their co-workers? They obviously know so much about each other’s crimes that every governmental office, every hospital, university, etc., will cease to exist withing a few months.

Canada is listed as #9 least corrupt country in the world. If reporting of crimes of the co-workers were allowed, Canada would move to the first place on the corruption index.

Exactly the same “confidentiality” rules exist in the science administration – in universities and in their “watchdog” – NSERC; actually, these rules are imposed by the NSERC and all the “associations” (read – trade unions). The criminals inside remain inside. So, what happened to this nurse, she obviously made some mistake; was she caught denying jewish holocaust or was she a sexist?
