No need for facility

This whole health centre thing is a big waste of money

Either the newspaper typist made an error or Mr. Skipsey simply doesn’t have a clue about where Nanaimo is located (The News, Jan. 29).

I believe it is around 33 kilometres from Qualicum Beach to the hospital, not 100 kilometres, as the story stated.

As for the broken limb of his friend, I also broke my arm eight years ago and I went to my doctor in Parksville, who immediately proceeded to place a cast on my arm.

We have all the medical facilities we need for our health in Oceanside.
