I was born in Verdun in 1947. There is only one medical hospital in Verdun and, as far back as I can remember, the hospital was referred to as, "The Verdun Butcher Shop" so it's quite possible that the lady was spared from from helping the hospital maintain its decades old reputation. Comments like, "It's a good place to die" were not unusual in association with that hospital. It has always been a "French" hospital, even when Verdun was 60% English. Unless they were brought there unconscious and had nobody to speak for them, most of the English speaking people would opt for the Montreal General Hospital, the Royal Victoria Hospital, Reddy Memorial, Jewish General or a number of others. That "hospital" was never user friendly if a patient happened to be English speaking. It's not difficult to imagine that this situation has arisen previously and that on this occasion, the derails made it to the media.
