The interested reader should note that no catholic hospital whatsoever is left here in Quebec. Not because of a forced government takeover, but rather because the religious institutions were more than happy to surrender the keys in the sixties. As for the attitude of the Jewish General Hospital, every Christian in the Province of Quebec should commend it and feel inspired by it.
