Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A recently published study discussed the trauma-related death toll that plagues northeastern Ontario, which has a much higher death rate from nonintentional trauma than the rest of the province Dr. Gary Bota, one of the study authors hates calling these tragedies accidents because that implies a random, act-of-God nature that he does not accept. "They're not accidents," he maintains. "They're patterns, just like infectious diseases."
