Have your voice heard on a provincial level


The following is a letter written by Darcy and obtained from the Concerned Citizens for Health Care movement.

As I promised when I was in Fort St. John, will be speaking about the health care crisis in Fort St. John when I respond to the Throne Speech on Monday October 20! But I am also hoping to raise the issue in Question Period sometime soon. For that to be most effective, it would be great to be able to refer to specific stories with the names of people who have serious stories to tell and would be willing to be “validators” (and whom the media could contact).

As you know, I took tons of notes that night at the Community meeting, but I didn’t get names of most people who spoke cause it was all happening so quickly. In particular, I am trying to find the person who said they had to drive 5 hours to Fort Nelson to see their former doctor, and someone who said they had to stand outside for 4 hours in -30 degree weather to wait to get into the walk-in clinic. (Even if it’s not people who spoke up that night, but people I can call who have similar stories to tell, that would work well too).

Thanks so much.
