To the editor,
As your article points out, Isobel Mackenzie, B.C. Seniors Advocate, advises that privately owned seniors’ care homes in B.C., operated as for-profit, fail to deliver 207,000 care hours which the B.C. Ministry of Health pays for, and so essentially taxpayers pay for. And this happens every year. This is scandalous.
The B.C. Seniors Advocate pointed this out in her report in 2012, eight years ago. Our provincial government is leaking taxpayer dollars like a sieve. Add this to the money-laundering scandal and ICBC overages – this is utterly ridiculous.
