Health Care Ad Campaign in BC

Dear Bird Talk,
Re: Health Care Ad Campaign in British Columbia We are short of doctors.

We are short of hospital beds. We need more MRIs. We need more nursing staff. Our clinics are closing their doors due to lack of funding. The B.C. government pays the absolutely, rock-bottom, pittance for out country illness ($75 per day) but somehow they found $15 MILLION of tax money to fund an all-out ad campaign to "open dialogue with the citizens of B.C. to find out what we want in the way of health care for the future". We WANT a properly funded health care system, NOW.

Thankfully we are not short of drugs– whoever came up with this lame-brain idea of spending 15 million dollars for an ad campaign when we, as taxpayers, have no place else to go for our health care, is definitely HIGH on something. Thank you for listening.

Sincerely, Joei Carlton Hossack.
