  1. Another story on this fire claims that the fire started in the home of an elderly woman with a brain disorder who was a smoker & drinker, if this is true, she herself is a victim of our healthcare. She should have been cared for, she seems to have fallen through the cracks

  2. Mary these things happen a great deal here in Ottawa in those senior apartments and yes it is usually do to careless smoking and drinking. We live in those apartments here in Ottawa and they are not safe for seniors and no place for kids. These are dangerous places to live. A neighbor down the hall from me was taken to the hospital lately and she is middle age but sick and on a walker and I haven’t seen her around for over a month. There are seniors in our building and this is too dangerous for them. Yes healthcare has fallen through the cracks and Ontario is literally broke.
