No clue, no flu plan

“Once thought to be dysfunctional now proven to be dysfunctional.” Alberta Health Services, Ed Stelmach, Ron Liepert and Stephen Duckett, have proven that they have no clue and no plan. The fiasco the people are going through to get a swine flu shot is plain and simply deplorable.

“Once thought to be dysfunctional now proven to be dysfunctional.”

Alberta Health Services, Ed Stelmach, Ron Liepert and Stephen Duckett, have proven that they have no clue and no plan. The fiasco the people are going through to get a swine flu shot is plain and simply deplorable.

The stories in the newspapers, radio and TV show disorganization at its best. Not having a proper priority plan, advising the public of the plan and not following that plan has left the public in disarray. Lineups are up to six hours long is some cases. Running out of vaccine and having to send people home because of the shortage. Busing seniors and handicapped people to vaccination sites to stand in line is the height of stupidity and shows the mentality of the three above amigos and their disregard for frail seniors and handicapped people.

This letter may not get printed because the ‘Advocate policy’ is that you have to be nice and polite. With a mess like this a person has no reason to be nice and polite. Somehow we have to get the message of disgust into the heads (rocks) of politicians.

Why would you try and be nice? Trying to be nice hasn’t worked. You wouldn’t put icing on a rotten, mouldy cake would you?
