Following this story, two Ontario NDP MPP's have written a letter to the Ontario Minister of Health, George Smitherman, asking that Owen Pallett's health coverage be reinstated.
France Gélinas (Nickel Belt), the NDP Critic for Health and Long-Term Care and Rosario Marchese (Trinity-Spadina) co-authored the letter.
Torontoist has the letter up at their place.
Again, I don't think it was an attempt to deny someone health care, but just someone enforcing what they thought was the letter of the law.
That said, I think the residency requirement is wrong and needs to be changed.
