Dear Edi­tor,

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.
