KAMLOOPS — I am very much in conflict over a case in Calgary where a mother has been charged with criminal negligence causing death because her son wasn’t given life-saving medication and died of a simple strep infection.
The boy was seven years old. He came down with an infection and died after being bedridden for 10 days.
The Crown says the boy’s death could have been prevented with simple medical attention. We can assume that, of course, but we will never know for sure.
The boy was given dandelion tea and oil of oregano - holistic home remedies that didn’t work.
