I want to support Jim Gillis’s letter to the editor about getting on with the plan for two hospitals.
If we befuddle the issue yet again we stand to lose the funding.
The naysayers who keep raising the issue of one hospital should, as Mr. Gillis nicely suggests, redirect their efforts into planning what could be done with St. Joe’s after the new hospital is a reality.
It would be refreshing if we all tried to go forward instead of fighting the old battles over and over.
Surely there are important, new issues which need our energy, e.g. what changes to Assisted Living and Complex Care do we want to see.
The provincial Ombudsperson’s excellent recommendations for seniors and health care are all worthy of our energy, too.
Let’s not go backwards — again.
