520    "Launched by healthcare providers in January 2018, the 
       #aHand2Hold campaign confronted the Quebec government's 
       practice of separating children from their families during
       medical evacuation airlifts, which disproportionately 
       affected remote and northern Indigenous communities. 
       Pediatric emergency physician Samir Shaheen-Hussain's 
       captivating narrative of this successful campaign, which 
       garnered unprecedented public attention and media coverage,
       seeks to answer lingering questions about why such a cruel
       practice remained in place for so long. In doing so it 
       serves as an indispensible case study of contemporary 
       medical colonialism in Quebec. Fighting for A Hand to Hold
       exposes the medical establishment's role in the 
       displacement, colonization, and genocide of Indigenous 
       peoples in Canada. Through meticulously gathered 
       government documentation, historical scholarship, media 
       reports, public inquiries, and personal testimonies, 
       Shaheen-Hussain connects the draconian medevac practice 
       with often-disregarded crimes and medical violence 
       inflicted specifically on Indigenous children. This 
       devastating history and ongoing medical colonialism 
       prevent Indigenous communities from attaining 
       internationally recognized measures of health and social 
       well-being because of the pervasive, systemic anti-
       Indigenous racism that persists in the Canadian public 
       health care system--and in settler society at large. 
       Shaheen-Hussain's unique perspective combines his 
       experience as a frontline pediatrician with his long-
       standing involvement in anti-authoritarian social justice 
       movements. Sparked by the indifference and callousness of 
       those in power, this book draws on the innovative work of 
       Indigenous scholars and activists to conclude that a 
       broader decolonization struggle calling for reparations, 
       land reclamation, and self-determination for Indigenous 
       peoples is critical to achieve reconciliation in Canada."-
