Health care being destroyed

Writers agree with previous letter that asserted that health care across the province was being systematically destroyed.

Dear Editor

We are writing in full support of the letter submitted by Patricia Kilt in the May 7th paper.

At last someone with the courage to put down in writing what a lot of us have been thinking.

Our government with the support of Interior Health is destroying our health care and our facilities. There is no incentive for young families or retirees to move to a community without medical care or medical facilities. Speaking as seniors we see the writing on the wall and are starting to look for a new community where we can live knowing our medical needs will be met.

Every time I go into our hospital I see all the plaques on the walls and I think of all the hours of work that went into supporting the hospital, raising money and volunteering time for the care of our citizens. All for not, as we are governed now by a group of people who don’t give a sweet damn about our health care.
