Health money being misspent


Years ago I wrote a letter to the editor and asked ‘what is the difference between a person on social assistance or Employment Insurance and a person who is a federal or provincial civil servant? There is no difference on P.E.I.

Someone once said anyone who complains but doesn't provide a solution is a whiner. The province is complaining about not receiving six per cent increase in health care. The solution is Justin Trudeau giving 3.5 per cent increase and then limiting increases to mental health and home care. Health P.E.I. created a bureaucracy instead of delivering health services. Elderly people are jamming hospital beds instead of being in proper housing. The province decided to spend money on a bureaucracy instead of proper housing.

I don't support Justin Trudeau. I know there is no difference in providing federal and provincial government jobs than anyone on social services or Employment Insurance. Let Wade MacLaughlan and the public civil service cry. The solution to improving health care on P.E.I. is forcing our province to spend federal money where it is allocated and no on public civil service.
