Any parent will tell you, here's nothing worse than having a sick child... unless it's having a critically ill child...
The Hospital for Sick Children may be one of the best in the world, but right now there are children in need of diagnoses on waiting lists because it is operating with one functional MRI machine.Now, with all the Fiberal jibber-jabber from the McGuinty government about how they're improving healthcare for Ontarians... you'd think this one would be a no brainer...
It's the province's shame that this has created an extensive backlog of kids -- who may be critically ill and in need of fast medical intervention -- waiting in line.It seems that, with an election looming, this just isn't on the Fiberal's radar... even at this critical juncture, at what is arguably the finest children's hospital in this part of the world.
Normally, Sick Kids has just two MRI machines, which is already problematic enough for the overworked staff and under-serviced patients.
George Smitherman and Dalton McGuinty are too busy trying to get re-elected to deal with this critical issue.
They actually need a third one. But first things first. They need to get their second one, closed for upgrading, up and running again first.It's funny though, Dalton's apparently got plenty of cashola to spread around on the scorching hot, high profile topic of the environment.
-- OAKVILLE -- Ontario is setting an ambitious example for the rest of the world by committing $79 million to plant 50 million trees to fight climate change and create a greener landscape for future generations, Premier Dalton McGuinty said yesterday.This Liberal government just doesn't care about screwing over our sick kids... now there's an "inconvenient truth."
