Simard MD test not required

Seventy-five-year-old seniors should be made aware that Alberta Transportation does not require them

Dear Editor:

Seventy-five-year-old seniors should be made aware that Alberta Transportation does not require them to complete a Simard MD or Drive Able assessment for the renewal of their operator’s license.

In 2011, random testing of high profile citizens, all actively employed, was carried out in one Alberta community. All except two failed the Simard MD — including an Alberta cabinet minister.

The Redford government should not allow this private, for-profit agency to perpetrate this massive multi-million dollar scam against our seniors.

Physicians should not direct seniors to this corrupt protocol.

Stuart Pearke,

Evansburg
