We need more MLAs willing to speak out

Transport Canada says there are no issues that required the hospital heliports to close in seven Alberta communities. Do we believe them or Alberta Health Services controlled by the super-bored? I’m sorry it is supposed to be the superboard.

Transport Canada says there are no issues that required the hospital heliports to close in seven Alberta communities. Do we believe them or Alberta Health Services controlled by the super-bored? I’m sorry it is supposed to be the superboard.

This group of individuals does not seem to have the citizens of Alberta’s health and welfare as their main interest but rather some unknown mission to cut health care spending regardless of services to the people that it is supposed to serve.

I think the minister of health and the premier are obligated to have some response to the people on such a serious matter. At least one MLA has had the gonads to stand up and say this is wrong.

Seems just after Ty Lund said that heads should roll, the helipads were reopened. We need more of our MLAs to stand up and let their views be known, instead of just following party policy, or maybe they agree with the minister of health and the superboard. I certainly hope not, or we are in a lot of trouble.

This superboard also has a responsibility to communicate with the community leaders in which they are making changes in. This is common courtesy and allows the community leaders to make changes or voice their opinion in the matters that affect their communities.

Who is the board accountable to and what exactly is the mandate? To help the people of Alberta, or make as many financial cuts as possible?
