Government ignoring all health-care woes

To the Editor,

Re: Doctors warn of burnout at new ER ward, April 6.

The truth about our fancy new ER is a shame. Why is the Vancouver Island Health Authority printing a fancy, free colour magazine to tell us how wonderful they are and wasting money that should be used for doctors?

Or is this reading material for a five-hour wait before seeing a doctor and going into convulsions?

Call me crazy, but this new magazine is a waste of our tax dollars. Our ER has asked for funds to hire doctors but the government chooses to give $11 million for one night of a Bollywood production and VIHA is printing a magazine.

This makes Monty Python seem like a drama not a comedy.
