It said Health Minister Claude Castonguay "bears full respon- sibility for the present crisis."

A special session has already been called for Monday to dis- cuss modifications to the medi- cal care plan which were of- fered Tuesday as last-minute concessions in the dispute, but which were rejected flatly by the specialists Wednesday night.
