If you live in Ottawa...

You might want to look into putting together an emergency medical kit...

Between December and February, there were at least 42 instances when Ottawa's paramedic service was at Level 0, which means there weren't any ambulances available.

But the abulances were probably slowed up the massive amounts of snow, which were of course caused by... uh, Global Warming? Ah hell, just get the damn emergency kit.

hours to offload patients and get back on the street... this is actually pretty serious stuff.

and it's not just ottawa... it's a province wide issue...

"This really isn't news; it's been like this for years. I have a friend who's a Toronto paramedic and he could scare the snot out of anybody who has a friend, or family member, with a serious health condition."

Too many of our local ambulance runs are an abuse of the 'free' health care sysytem.

Well healthcare has to take second place because of "Diversity", the goberment has it's priorities and apparently Polygamist and their hoards of welfare rats are more important than viable health care. Unlimited social programs, like paying welfare to welfare rats for a lifetime, will cripple Canadian cities if the tap isn't shut off soon. Society can't afford the leftards dream of a Utopian Canada, not enough tax dollars to sustain Utopian Welfare Hell Hole Canada.

Priorities are so difficult for the leftards.

You know what'll make this all better ?

A $20M archive building

Ottawa will receive a $20-million handout from the province to help fund a new home for the city archives

Yep, that outta do the trick.
