Reader wants solutions to health care system printed

Reader responds to editorial

Dear Editor,

I had the very same hospital experience with my mom. But that was 25 years ago when Ralf was premiere, the wait times were not as long then, but the population is now ten times bigger.

My mom and I were transferred from the Red Deer Hospital to the Calgary hospital to the Edmonton hospital for tests in a two-month period. At every hospital she got the same test because her records had been lost.

I would like to thank the WildRose Review for all their one sided fear mongering editorials.

But if you ever hear of a WildRose solution and not the Party finding fault with everything please print that.

I did vote for the WildRose.

Editors’ Note: This letter is in response to an editorial by Pipestone Flyer editor Stu Salkeld in the June 13 edition of the Rimbey Review. In his editorial, Salkeld said patients, including his own mother, get frustrated with the healthcare system in Alberta.
