International doctor recruitment being called step in right direction but not remedy to doctor shortage crisis

It's been considered a crisis in this province for some time now--the significant shortage of family doctors. And over the weekend--BC's newly sworn in premier, who happens to be married to a family physician, made an announcement that may help address the shortage by paving the way for more internationally trained doctors to practice here. But as Klaudia Van Emmerik reports, while the announcement is being touted as a step in the right direction, it's not the remedy some say will fix the problem.
