    Tim I can't believe you would make such an idiotic comment. Just because Dr. Allison happens to be the Chief Medical Officer, does not mean he does not have other things on his agenda. What do you expect him to do - be in the hospital (which one) 24-7? I would be more concerned about the patients who cannot get life saving surgeries because the ICU wards are full of H1N1 patients. What about them? Think man, think.

    Well I'm in shock now. Just heard on the radio that the pipe player who greeted Prince Charles downtown St. John's today is Dr. David Allison - chief medical officer for St. John's ! Isn't he meant to be busy looking after the H1N1 crisis presently affecting St. John's. Is he being paid on the job to play bag pipes for the Royals during this emergency! This is outrageous.

    Why would the Cheif Medical Officer be concerned about the common flu??
