Doc­tor short­age needs to be ad­dressed

Cape Breton Post - - Editorial - Bev­erly Joseph River Ryan

There are a lot of Cape Bre­ton­ers who have been with­out doc­tors for some time now and lit­tle has been done to help them.

Now with the Lib­er­als hav­ing called an elec­tion they are promis­ing more doc­tors who no doubt will ap­pear from thin air.

The doc­tors we do have here are all over­worked and many are close to re­tir­ing. When that hap­pens more peo­ple will be left in a help­less state.

We have lost spe­cial­ists be­cause of the way things are done here and who would blame them? There are not enough in­cen­tives be­ing of­fered for them to stay or come here.

This is only go­ing to end up as a se­niors’ is­land and peo­ple will be left to die in their homes.

Shame on this govern­ment for mak­ing false prom­ises to get elected.
