A doctor is calling for Taser-armed guards in Fort McMurray's ER amid escalating violence.
The Northern Lights Regional Health Centre has seen an increase in violent confrontations between staff and patients.
"Our guards don't even carry pepper spray. That would be a minimum," said Dr. Brian Dufresne. "I know there is controversy on the Taser, but it would not be . . . unreasonable."
