The letter to the editor of the Advocate on Dec. 8, by Donald Dingwall of Red Deer shows just how futile and frustrated we are with our health, senior and social assistance programs.
Is this the best that the government and AHS can do? After the billions, maybe trillions of dollars wasted by government, our health services is a disgrace. At least in the U.S., if you have the money, you can get services in short order. Where did the billions of dollars from oil royalties and other revenue go?
I have a son scheduled to go to Thailand this month for a back operation because to get this done in our glorious Alberta health care system — the waiting time is over two years.
The Alberta government should be ashamed and booted out of power for this kind of a mess. The PC governments have tried to destroy our health-care system for 20 or 30 years and it is now at the point where our system is sicker than our sickest patients.
Well at least you all get your entitlements, fancy wages, wage increases, expense accounts and finally a nice lucrative payout at the end of your political lifetime.
In the meantime, what are you doing for and to the patients and taxpayers?
The sad part of writing letters to officials is that we won’t get a reply and this letter likely goes into the delete file along with the first one. Your arrogance and lack of respect for the ordinary people, the tax payers, is pathetic.
I will vote ABC (Anybody But Conservative) in the next go around and many of the people in my group are feeling the same way.
A frustrated citizen and taxpayer,
