Quit griping — hospital location in Courtenay done deal

Dear editor,

The only thing E.E. got correct in his diatribe against the hospital location is that we have too many governments.

Dear editor,

Call me crazy, but the only thing E.E. got correct in his diatribe against the hospital location is the fact that we have too many governments in the Valley — one would do us just fine.

I think it was the failure to get an agreement from Campbell River that led to the two locations. They wanted one, so did the Valley, and putting it in between made no sense at all, thus two hospitals.

As to location, this is about as good as it gets other than the site that got ripped by the military.

So suck it up, folks, and quit griping. This is the location. Crying now is futile.

Paul Ellegood,
