P3 Comox Valley hospital won’t work for her

Dear editor,

I don't want a P-3 hospital in the Comox Valley.

Dear editor,

I don’t want a P-3 hospital in the Comox Valley.

When my mother had her first four children, she could not afford to go to the local hospital. Then hospitalization came and she proudly entered the hospital doors to have her last two children.

My mother and father worked hard all their lives and contributed to this hospital.

Will my Canadian grandson’s wife be able to go to the hospital to have her baby? Not if we start down the private road.

My son and his wife in Indiana have to decide if they can afford it before they take my American grandson to their hospital.

Do you want Canadians to have to start making those kinds of decisions now? I don’t.

Sue Magnusson,

Comox
