People’s strong faith in herbal remedies is not misplaced

Re: “Crown appealing verdict in toddler’s meningitis case.”

I believe the Crown would never have laid any charge if one of these two items were part of David and Collet Stephan’s defence.

1. Their religious leaders had only said prayers for the boy’s recovery at his bedside because of their religious beliefs.

2. If they were Indigenous, and placed their child in a sweat lodge and burned sweet grass while chanting for the spirits to heal him.

I am only pointing out that some people have strong and traditional beliefs, either spiritual, or in some home remedies handed down through the generations.

People are losing confidence in our justice system. No, correct that. It is already lost. It is a sad outcome, but also a time to show compassion.

I and my family, as well as many other families, have used herbal remedies for treatment of colds, etc.
