Descriptions : Vancouver Island in the late th century was a major port of entry for people from all walks of life But for many the sense of hope that had sustained them through rough sea voyages came to an abrupt halt as soon as they reached land Quarantined is the heart wrenching true story of the thousands of forgotten people who arrived on our shores only to be felled by disease in an era when medical care was unsophisticated at best and attitudes toward the poor and the sick were often narrow minded It is about the struggle to establish a federally funded quarantine station which when it was finally established became as significant and as longstanding as Grosse Ile in Quebec Lawlor s Island in Halifax and Ellis Island in New York At its core Quarantined is a cautionary tale about the exploitation of the sick and the results of government neglect and lack of commitment to pressing national health care issues affecting the poor and disenfranchised It is a story that has as much relevance today as it did more than a hundred years ago
