The article focuses on the concerns about the new regime for bariatric surgery in Ontario. It discusses the possible impact on the new medical regime in the province, regarding the presence of longer waiting lists and regional variations in the accessibility of surgery. It also considers the tendency for the new regime to threaten the lives of morbidly obese patients, as Bariatric Medical Institute Yoni Freedhoff notes the new regime as biased against obese people.
