I think some people are missing the point. The money for this monument is already there. I see this as closer for all those affected by this. This monument will not only act as a reminder but as a symbol of courage for all the women who fought their battles and stood up for what they knew was a mistake. The people who did not survive as a result of their negligence, will be greatly missed. Anyone who disagrees with this monument should keep their opinions to themselves because their lives were clearly not affected and they may not be grasping the concept of the whole idea of the monument being done in the first place.

Why not have the monument designed as a wedding dress or one that was mentioned in this story, one to signify that women do not make it to attend such functions. Names can be listed, for a small donation in memory of a loved one. It can be done in pale pink, to represent Breast Cancer.

Anyone complaining about this monument would feel otherwise if you had a loved one who suffered unnecessarily, or even worse, eventually passed away, because of these errors. We all know the horrors of cancer, treatments, etc. It doesn't have to be extravagant.

...no disrespect to those who's lives were effected but resources will be used to create a monument to acknowledge the victims of incompetence in a system and its employees who are still active today?? Wow - why not take the money and put it towards improvements in facilities, training and equipment so it doesn't happen again.

The monument is a waste of money! What is it with this place and monuments anyway? The TCH is littered with foolish ol' roadside memorials. Walking around Quidi Vidi Lake is like walking through a graveyard with memorial plaques on every bench...enough already!

Seem like everytime something goes wrong, someone makes a mistake their solution is to put up a monument,.... I am pretty sure Eastern health can use the $$$$$$ for better purposes... Put the funds towards a new MRI machine to cut the wait time, invest in other types of necessary equipment .... Don't get me wrong it was terrible what these women went through but.....Another monument ... Please we can do without it

I agree, this recognition monument is long overdue. However, I think it should be established in a more public area where mostly everyone can see it, other than the Dr. Bliss Murphy Clinic or the Gardens. That would seem like an appropriate place, but then there would be only a limited number of people that would see it and be able to reflect on its meaning.
