theEditor Treatment of hospital staff
A couple of weeks ago I read a letter from a Mr. Fred Harper who lives in Morrisburg. Mr. Harper had to have knee surgery, so he went to the General Hospital in Brockville. After the operation he had to spend a couple of days recooperating and while he was there, he observed how the nurses are treated. He claims that the nurse who took care of him did an excellent job and Fred claims that someone threw urine, as well as coffee at this nurse, plus the cursing and verbal abuse. Well, that person should have been told to get dressed and get out as far as I’m concerned. There is no way that our doctors and nurses should have to put up with that. No sir, our doctors and nurses should be treated with respect, they deserve it and have earned it. Mr. Harper says that when big companies like GM or Bombardier get into financial trouble they ask the government to help them and in most cases, I believe that most of them are forgiveable loans and in the long run, who pays for those loans? Us, the taxpayers of course. As Fred says, should we get sick, don’t go and see these companies, they won’t do anything for us. To me, the reason why they’re in financial trouble is because of those big bonuses when we buy their products and a good example of that was in the Freeholder where the bank of Canada gave their top executives big bonuses. Who will pay for those bonuses? The creditors who borrow money from these big banks. Am I right or am I wrong? If I’m wrong, I stand to be corrected, those are my views.
