Alberta Health investigating case of Anishinaabe woman who was sent home after stroke


The province of Alberta has launched an investigation into why an Anishinaabe woman who was feeling unwell, had slurred speech and had difficulty walking was sent home from several Edmonton hospitals.

Valerie Sawdo who is originally from Lac Des Mille Lacs First Nation in Ontario, made her first trip to the hospital by ambulance on May

In total, Sawdo’s daughters say she made seven trips. At one point she was given a blood test that came back normal so she was released and told she was suffering from anxiety.
