Next government urged to remember promises
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
