Why critics say Joyce Echaquan's treatment points to systemic racism in the health system

The viral video showing a dying Indigenous woman screaming while she is subjected to verbal abuse by staff at a Quebec hospital has reignited the debate over racism in the health-care system. The recording, made by Joyce Echaquan herself from her hospital bed, has led to the firing of two hospital staff members, and has sparked a coroner’s investigation. But there are many saying that this is a deeper problem than one woman’s death. Dave is joined by Nazila Bettache, an internist and assistant professor of medicine at the Univeristy de Montreal, who co-authored an op-ed on racism in the health care sector.
