We’ll have a lot of debt — and ‘old, outdated hospitals’

Dear editor,

As usual the best part of our local papers is the letters section.

Dear editor,

As usual the best part of our local papers is the letters section.

The hospital(s) fiasco another sad, absurd, albeit fascinating example of a lack of cohesion in decision-making in the Comox Valley.

Have I missed the letters of protest regarding the fact that these new hospitals will be built as P3s — that stands for public-private partnership?

Otherwise known as bad news for you and me the taxpayer.

If you have a moment, please read the following: www.monbiot.com/2010/11/22/the-uks-odious-debts.

Yes, that’s right, whether we get one, two, three or more it matters not since what we’ll end up with is a giant debt to private corporations that must be paid — and old, outdated hospitals.

Marie Gaudreau,

Fanny Bay
