Smithers council is interfering with my health care

Writer from Telkwa says CT scanner should not require off-site works.

Editor,

The Smithers town council can force their businesses to build little portions of “sidewalks to nowhere.” If the Smithers residents accept this display, for the amusement of the rest of the province, that is their concern.

The outside “footprint” of the Smithers hospital is not being altered. Demanding funds for sidewalks should not be triggered. The hospital is doing an internal construction to accommodate much needed equipment.

Smithers council, you are interfering with my health care.

All of us us who are forced drive to Terrace or Prince George should consider entering a “class action” against the Smithers council personally for denying us improvements at our Smithers hospital.

What do you say fellow patients? Are you happy to have interference by those who are denying us services “for a principle” that endangers the lives of ourselves or family members. We are being denied our health needs.

Smithers council, you are displaying an incredible stupidity and lack of consideration for all of us in the community.
