METRO VANCOUVER — For years, Richmond resident Selina She Yin Tsui held herself out as a “holistic healer,” diagnosing ailments ranging from tapeworms, gallstones and parasites all the way up to cancer.

In some cases, Tsui allegedly charged tens of thousands of dollars for her “treatments,” which included — according to a lawsuit filed by the B.C. government against Tsui in August 2010 — administering arsenic to one woman to the point of paralysis and cardiac arrest.

Hence the visitors.
