ER holiday crunch

The Health Sciences Centre is preparing for the holidays. Spokesperson Rhonda Crocker-Ellacott says the Emergency Room at the hospital will be hopping. She says during the holidays they get up to 400 visits a day up from 300 on a typical day. It's because most of the walk-in clinics in the city are closed for much of the season, causing the holiday crunch.
