The number of people over the age of 75 will double in the next few years and the General Hospital could be used to deal with the issues we will face.
According to the Direct Democracy Municipal Referendum Act, our City Council would have to hold a public meeting to discuss the future use of the hospital before even voting on the issue.
There has not been one public meeting on this issue and it’s a shame if the Hospital Board proceeds with this sale and not allow the public to have a say.
It is my intent to make a presentation to Council on this very important issue. This hospital must be used for the common good and social benefit of the community and not the financial benefit of a few.
