Why no referendum about Comox Valley hospital location?

Dear editor,

In response to Many Questions About Hospital (Record, Nov. 7).

Dear editor,

In response to Many Questions About Hospital (Record, Nov. 7).

I totally agree with the letter to the editor.

Has anyone even tried to go up Ryan Road? It is too busy as it is and to put a new hospital on this busy and hazardous stretch of road is crazy!

Is anyone listening?

Building a large regional hospital situated between the Comox Valley and Campbell River makes more sense. The inland highway gives great access for ambulances, people and workers.

Being originally from Victoria, their St. Joseph’s was the same — thankfully they built their new one in the Victoria area out in the western community.

Do we not get a say in this — e.g. a referendum?

Please listen to these professionals and let’s do this right!

S. Humphries,

Buckley Bay
