Politics, Science, or Compassion ?

Here's an article in today's Star about the New Brunswick government's decision to fund CCSVI surgery. Anyone in that province who pays to  travels abroad for "liberation surgery" can apply for  reimbursement. Not sure if they get all their money  back or not.  A nuerologist is questioning  the fund saying it is a political move and not  scientific; whatever that means, and figures it's always a nuero who complains whenever anyone even tries to do something positive in regards to CCSVI.  Oh! and neurologists aren't political ?

The fund is only $500,000 which isn't much considering patient costs are anywhere from $20-$30 thousand.

No doctor,  it isn't science and it isn't politics. It's compassion.
