H1N1 response shows PCs lack judgment, skill

Einstein said, “The group of individuals who create a problem do not have the collective consciousness to solve it.”

Einstein said, “The group of individuals who create a problem do not have the collective consciousness to solve it.”

The Stelmach Tories and political appointees cannot even accurately predict numbers for flu vaccines, how can we expect them to solve our health-care crisis?

As a college professor in a rural college, I have already had students confirmed with the H1N1 virus.

Some rural residents are told wait until Nov. 9 for the immunization clinics, and then we know there is a two-week incubation period.

By that time, the H1N1 flu will already have run its course.

What will be their response if a much more serious flu arrives? Are rural residents second-class citizens?

The government handling of this current flu outbreak shows their incompetence in managing our health-care system.

What will happen next year after many of our front-line health-care workers are laid off and many more choose to leave their chosen profession?

Albertans deserve MLAs who can solve and make sound predictions based on demographic data to better prepare for the next pandemic.
