Time to abolish Interior Health

Why is the Interior Health Authority being allowed to throw its weight around by doing its best to kill off small towns?

Why is the Interior Health Authority being allowed to throw its weight around by doing its best to kill off small towns?

Small town residents pay taxes the same as big cities.

Interior Health Authority should be abolished along with anyone connected with it.

Princeton General Hospital was functioning quite well before IHA started with its bullying tactics by shutting down hospital departments at its whim, causing physicians and surgeons to pack up and leave to practice elsewhere.

It’s a disgrace what’s happening in our town and you people (the IHA) couldn’t care less, yet the federal government can spend $1.5 billion a year to fight a war that’s never going to end, look after/take care of illegal immigrants that are allowed to stay here, while small town hospitals are facing huge cutbacks because of not enough funding. There’s something wrong with this picture.
