PETERS – Be careful to which celebrity doctors you give credence

The limited edition ‘Dr. Henry shoe’ released by John Fluevog Shoes.

POP QUIZ: what does Dr. Bonnie Henry have in common with Michael Jordan, The Rock and Kanye West?

Answer: they all have their own shoes.

Noted Vancouver shoe designer John Fluevog introduced the Dr. Henry shoe this week, in tribute to B.C.’s provincial health officer, who happens to be a Fluevog enthusiast herself.

It’s not necessarily a bad thing that the public health officials who have worked their whole lives to find the best ways to protect the health of the nation are becoming our society’s heroes.

In the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci has been lionized with various tributes from artists depicting him as a saint to his own sock puppet.

Dr. Henry and Dr. Fauci certainly seem more worthy of the plaudits than the likes of professional athletes or reality TV stars.
