Next gov­ern­ment urged to re­mem­ber prom­ises

Cape Breton Post - - Editorial -

I have watched the Nova Sco­tia elec­tion cam­paign closely as peo­ple af­fected by gov­ern­ment pol­icy make an ef­fort and plea to im­press upon those with power the need for change.

Our health care is in a cri­sis sit­u­a­tion, our doc­tors speak out and hope­fully they have been heard by all who are run­ning for pub­lic of­fice.

Our chil­dren have re­sources cut and hope­fully all those run­ning have heard the voice of par­ents ad­vo­cat­ing on be­half of their chil­dren.

Re­gard­less of the out­come to­day, the voices of these doc­tors and the voices of par­ents who have chil­dren re­quir­ing spe­cial re­sources should be re­mem­bered.

I urge the next gov­ern­ment in Nova Sco­tia to act and re­in­state re­sources for our chil­dren. I urge the next gov­ern­ment to lis­ten to the doc­tors and make the nec­es­sary changes to en­sure our health care is im­proved and not de­te­ri­o­rated. I urge the next gov­ern­ment to re­mem­ber the prom­ises they made dur­ing the elec­tion to those who gift them with the op­por­tu­nity to rep­re­sent them.

We must move for­ward to rec­og­nize the wrongs in a sys­tem that hurts our most vul­ner­a­ble and change pol­icy to one that re­flects a Nova Sco­tia that cares about the needs of its ci­ti­zens. Edna Lee Syd­ney
