To British Columbia Premier Dave Eby
Dear Mr. Eby,
Before Dr. Henry’s latest announcement that health care workers would no longer be wearing masks on the job, I was already extremely reluctant to go to the hospital because of the outrageous waiting times in the emergency department.
In August 2021 I was forced to call an ambulance and go to the ER when I had an attack of vertigo. Nauseous, miserable, and dry-heaving into a cardboard bucket, I sat for 12 hours in a waiting room filled with scores of sick people. It was horrible.
Now, in addition to inhumane waiting times, going to the hospital will mean being needlessly exposed to every airborne disease around.
If these policies were being promulgated by a right-wing party I would not be surprised. But the NDP??
What the hell has happened to the NDP??
Whatever it is, it’s appalling.
Sincerely yours, [etc.]
