Today, we are seeing outbreaks of a disease that was declared eradicated in Canada in 1998 and two years later in the United States. In the Pacific Northwest, Metro Vancouver, Inuvik — and now with a confirmed case here in Toronto — measles is making a comeback. That’s due, in part, to decisions made not to vaccinate children.
