Letter: Cancer centre in Kamloops cannot wait


Now that our provincial election is behind us, I’m hoping a certain promise will be kept.

The B.C. NDP promised the people of Kamloops a full-service cancer centre 30 years ago.

They promised it again during this past election campaign — only this time, they mentioned it was in their 10-year plan. Premier John Horgan then said it would be realized during this mandate.

People that have, or will have, cancer cannot afford to wait and the promise must be kept.

In order to get that done, I hope Kamloops B.C. Liberal MLAs Todd Stone and Peter Milobar can demonstrate leadership and get all candidates from all the parties who ran in this election to come together, as a united front representing all Kamloopsians, so this very urgent healthcare need is met as soon as possible.

Cancer patients cannot afford to wait.

Families are counting on all of you. Saving lives should be everybody’s No. 1 priority.
