Asking for pay to volunteer in Haiti? What the F***!

According to CBC News, Quebec Health Minister Yves Bolduc is evaluating a request by some of orthopedic doctors that they be reimbursed $704 per day by the province for volunteer work in devastated Haiti where thousands of thousands people were killed from massive earthquake. 

The vice-president Dr. Louis Bellemare for the Quebec’s association of orthopedists said…

“The doctors who are in Haiti will stay, regardless of whether the government agrees to reimburse them,… But if they were paid the $704 base fee they normally receive in Quebec, they might stay longer and more doctors might decide they could afford to go, he added.”

Isn’t it clear matter to everyone that if they were ORDERED, like Canadian Forces and search-and-rescue teams, to go down to Haiti by the government then they should be paid. If they VOLUNTEERED to go without being asked they should not be paid.

Comments section are flooding with angers on these doctors and some comments are even escalating this issue to the Quebec bashing level.

And this comments highlighted me

“For $700 a day, I’d “Quebec volunteer” anywhere on this planet under whatever conditions were required by me.”
