In the wake of the government’s announcement that a new tower will be built to add to Interior Health’s buildings portfolio, something magical has happened. There is no doctor shortage.
If Health Minister Terry Lake didn’t say anything, then it surely can’t be true. What’s even better?
If there ever was a doctor shortage, it will be fixed by 2022 when the new tower is completed. Kamloops will have a large influx of doctors. If you build it they will come.
And no doctor shall retire before that time? Probably not a good idea to get sick either. Magical.
So do not fear if you have no doctor. They will come when the great new landmark is completed and all shall be saved. And you will have a private room, too. What great screenplay. And the NDP will support this proposal if elected.
Can it get any better? Reality has no place in the mind of a politician.
