The Walkerton tragedy, an E.coli outbreak that resulted in seven deaths and 2,300 people sick, was unprecedented in Canada. The medical officer of health for Grey-Bruce was told that a number of people in the Walkerton area had developed serious illness. E.coli was confirmed and the medical officer suspected contaminated water as a source of the problem. However, the public utilities commission had assured him that the water was fine. Still he had a bad feeling that Walkerton was the verge of a very serious outbreak. He wondered what his next step should be in the complex situation he faced; he did not have much data to act on.
