TB Inquest Day Five- Inquest postponed for one week (possibly longer)
 

TB and the Homeless: Inquest of Joseph Tiegesser who died of T.B. 
postponed for one week, possibly longer -- reconvenes on Monday December 
1st.

Friday November 21st

 

This is the fifth update from the Coroner's Inquest into the death of a 
homeless man,  Joseph Teigesser, from tuberculosis. Lawyers Peter 
Rosenthal and Jackie Esmonde are representing the Tuberculosis Action 
Group (T-BAG) at the Inquest. T-BAG's report, "TB or Not To Be", which 
was released in June of 2003 is available on TDRC's website at 
http://www.tdrc.net/TB_Report.pdf

 

-------------------------------------

 

REPORT ON DAY FIVE OF THE TB INQUEST (Friday November 21st 2003): 

 

INQUEST POSTPONED FOR ONE WEEK -- POSSIBLY LONGER

 

The Inquest of Joseph T. was suddenly postponed.  The crown has suddenly 
become a provincial judge and can no longer be the coroner's counsel in 
the inquest.  Kim Murray, counsel for Council Fire, Na' Ma' Res and 
Anishnawabe said "this is very unfortunate, the inquest is postponed for 
at least a week or maybe longer".   Cathy Crowe of the Tuberculois 
Action Group added "The issue of crowding and TB amongst the homeless 
will not magically go away this winter. As the cold comes the hostels 
will be filled.  There is also the warning of a severe flu season in 
Ontario.  How sad that the issues that led to the T.B. micro-epidemic 
were not openly discussed before our next winter from hell". 

In Addition, the coroner ruled against a proposed visit by the jury to 
shelters and drop-in centers.  The tour would have allowed the jury to 
see the terrible conditions that homeless people face.  The inquest will 
reconvene on Monday December 1st, 2003.  It will either continue from 
that date or be further delayed.  Activists are not hopeful.  The 
homeless will face the winter without much protection from T.B., other 
diseases or perils of the cold. 

 

For more information about the inquest, please phone the Toronto 
Disaster Relief Committee at 416-599-8372.
