Adrienne Spafford + the Political Panel #MailbagEdition
A Daily-Double episode. For Part 1, we have Adrienne Spafford as our guest. Adrienne is CEO of Addictions and Mental Health Ontario, and she has a long history as, not only a seasoned healthcare leader, but a senior advisor in government. We’re going to be talking about the impacts of COVID on mental health. We'll also chat more broadly about our system and strategy for addictions and mental health care. What are we getting right? And where can we do better? Part 2 of the pod is a special edition of the Political Panel, with our comms and campaign gurus, Jenni Byrne and Scott Reid! Today we're doing an ALL-MAILBAG show, answering all your burning political questions and sharing some questionable stories from our past. And don't miss our new segment at the end of the Panel we call, “HEY YOU!” ... Here’s how “HEY YOU” works: each of us will throw a single question out into the social media ether ... for a politician or public figure. Will it be entertaining? Yeah, I’m pretty sure it will. Will somebody take the bait and give us an answer? We’ll see. Will somebody else create a burner account, and masquerade as that public figure to try to fake us out? Seems like a lot of work, but sure. Go for it. Anyway, stick around for “HEY YOU!” Thank you for joining us on The Herle Burly podcast.

Fear of racism deters many Indigenous people from seeking medical treatment, says health-care leader
Indigenous Canadians are avoiding going to the doctor or seeking care in hospitals, says the president of The Indigenous Physicians Association. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact, but there's also another potentially deadly factor: racism. "People are fearing that they will be treated in a racist manner, or not receive the standard of care that a non-Indigenous person would," Dr. Cornelia (Nel) Wieman, tells Dr. Brian Goldman. Wieman, who is also a psychiatrist and senior medical officer at the First Nations Health Authority in Vancouver says the death of Joyce Echaquan has contributed to that fear. Echaquan, a 37-year old Atikamekw woman live-streamed her final moments at hospital Joliette, Quebec which revealed staff berating her. Dr. Wieman says the refusal of Quebec's premier to acknowledge systemic racism in the wake of that incident is a barrier to progress and she's concerned the inquiry into Echaquan's death will not probe the root causes of what happened to her. Despite that, and the racism she's faced in her own career, she's still hopeful progress can be made. She says one step forward would be to hold authorities at a higher level responsible for actions of healthcare workers who prove to be racist. She says Canada needs to increase the availability of cultural safety training for health-care workers, which was featured on a previous episode of White Coat, Black Art. We also speak to Gregory Buffalo, a Cree man from Fort McMurray who contacted White Coat, Black Art after listening to that program several times. He tells us why that show moved him, and shares his family's experiences dealing with racism in the healthcare system.
