Health Canada bans 'non-urgent' medical travel for First Nations during hockey tournament

CBC News obtained a letter from Health Canada to First Nations north of Sioux Lookout that outlines restrictions on travel for patients from March 14 to 18, during the Northern Bands Hockey Tournament in Dryden, Ont.

Dryden is about 350 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay.
