Quebec: Plastic surgery clinics get permits after failed inspections

If this is how they inspect plastic surgery are we expected to trust the government with regard to abortion clinics?

Quebec's Health Ministry said it granted permits to clinics that failed inspections only after the province's college of physicians promised to ensure any operational or equipment gaps were corrected.

Under Quebec's current regulations for private surgery clinics, all facilities will eventually have to be inspected by Accreditation Canada, a non-profit, independent organization.

But that requirement doesn't take effect for another three years.

It's somewhat reminiscent of the Kermit Gosnell case.
