Reader letter: Inadequate government health care investment revealed during pandemic


Article content

The federal government recently announced billions of dollars for transportation which is definitely needed.

But where are the billions for health care that is needed more.

If health care had been a priority for both federal and provincial governments over the past years perhaps all the problems discovered during the COVID-19 pandemic would not have been as severe.

Long-term care, inadequate hospital facilities, not enough nurses, ICU space, etc. all would have been under better conditions in being able to handle the pandemic.

In my opinion if Canada had not outsourced the manufacture of vaccines and other pharmaceuticals we also would not be begging other countries for vaccines now.

It’s time for our governments to step up and plan for the future so we don’t keep having this revolving door in health care.
