Political choices could still alter future of new Cowichan hospital

Political choices could still alter future of new Cowichan hospital

When John Horgan visited Duncan in the first week of the provincial election campaign, I was delighted that he made a commitment to move forward with building a new hospital. He publicly announced the approval of the business plan along with the funding numbers.

He also pointed out that Andrew Wilkinson’s $3 billion in tax cuts to the wealthiest could mean deep cuts to services as we experienced when they were last in power. So, it concerned me when I heard Sonia Furstenau downplay the risk presented by the BC Liberals and accuse the process of being politicized.

While I give thanks to all the people who have been advancing our new hospital plan, the stark reality is that until a shovel hits the ground, it will come down to political choices.
