The public meeting on health care in Qualicum Beach was a major disappointment. It was billed as an opportunity to hear the premier address the lack of health care services in our community and to hear from residents about the needs of their families.
Unfortunately, we left the meeting no further ahead. In fact, it felt as if we were tricked into attending a Liberal campaign rally as the premier pleaded for the re-election of her MLA; took cheap shots at the NDP leader, Adrian Dix, for his stand on her party’s imposition of the HST; and, scolded those of us in our community who oppose the Raven mine.
Please, may we have a little more integrity in our public consultation processes?
