Do you want to know how bad things are at Alberta Health Services?
Well, the situation is so bad that the poor folks at the Rimbey Extended Care Centre are now being rationed to one cookie a day. And they can forget about evening snacks too. Alberta can’t afford that kind of extravagance anymore. Heck, Alberta Health Services can’t even swing for homogenized milk. The old folks will just have to make do with one per cent milk from now on. It should work just fine in the instant coffee.
The real sad thing is that I’m not making this up. You can’t make up stuff like this. It’s just all too silly to comprehend. Someone should tell Alberta Health Services CEO Dr. Stephen Duckett that this type of extreme penny-pinching won’t fatten his bonus one little bit. So what is the point? Surely they can’t really enjoy bullying old people.
