The 'DEBATE ME!' strategy a common stunt. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

- Offer almost never genuine
- Often just attempt to undermine someone's credibility ('you coward!') & garner attention
- Debating bunk meisters can > false balance & normalize harmful misinformation

Over the past 3yrs I cared for many marginalized individuals (most were OHIP-eligible but w/o means to get a health card) knowing they would avoid the indignity of being charged for care received.

Cutting costs on the backs of those who need the most support is a bad decision.
