One Mans Opinion
July 9, 2021
The first part of this is directed to Mr. Palmer who has been doing a wonderful job with his CKNDP (Whoops, sorry NW) segments and the Vancouver Sun !! Fair and Balanced !! Palmer is the definition of that phrase .
I have also copied in some others in media, I am told by credible sources that those same media types they rejoice when they hear from me !!
My apologies I have no contact info for Premier Horgan, the paramedics Chief, Mr. Dix (who has done a wonderful job with Covid)
Dr. Bonnie, or Jordan Armstrong, I hope someone will pass my comments on to all of them .
My wife and I bought one of the B.C. Hydrogen Bus for $ 45 K, it is now anchored in the parking lot at the Victoria Lawn Bowls Club in Beacon Hill Park . We now live in it at that location and we just love it !!
Feel free to drop by for morning tea some sunny morning .
There are many problems with the Ambulance /Paramedics service, everything from delays at ER rooms which ties them up,to somewhat frivolous unnecessary calls from the public when they could get themselves to clinics, GP or ER, to far too many drug addled criminals plugging up ER and Ambulance many of them here from other provinces and more you are obviously aware of but the most obvious thing that causes problems in the Ambulance paramedics response time gets NO Air Time or print time .
We must also keep in mind that a very high percentage of the Drug Addle Repeat Prolific Offenders clogging our streets and sewers are in B.C. on Non-Returnable Warrants from other jurisdictions . The B.C. Government and Top Mensa Member Premier Horgan should immediately take it upon themselves to check the ID of every single people kind arrested and if they are from another jurisdiction they should be immediately sent back to face the courts in that Canadian province, it might help with Emergency Response times here ad they are not being arrested here or going to ER in Ambulance if they are in jail back in Manitoba or Ontario . my apologies for the common sense!
No excuses but I am told that each and every day 365 days a year close to 40% of the Paramedics are OFF the JOB with Stress Leave and Sick Call Ins !! I DO NOT CARE, there is no excuse for that! Jordan Armstrong and the rest of media need to ask the tough questions of the Ambulance union Chief, Premier Horgan, Dix and the soon to be gone Head of the EHS . Tax payers cannot afford to get gouged even more so the Gov can hire 40 – 50% more paramedics so they can all end up working a three day work week while being paid for 5, Unacceptable !!! I am sick and tired of the Paramedics Chief demanding more from government and “Passing the Buck” while Media “Whistle Past the Graveyard of the Tax payer” !! Sickening !! Hell I need a few months of Stress leave just writing this!
As I often do I spoke to friends and business associates all over North America about Paramedic/Ambulance response times and not one of them mentioned a problem or complaints they have heard of . Some of those I spoke with live in Fort Lauderdale, Boston, SFO, SEA, PDX, and IAH/Houston . you know as well as I do most/all of those cities experience very high violent crime rates so there are many stabbing and gunshot victims .
It is more than obvious now that the B.C./Canadian Tax Payers are becoming “Victims” of the Bureaucracy and between the high cost of housing, taxes of all kinds, and Government creep and Waste the Tax payers are the ones who are under threat of stress and sickness from the relentless Tax Assaults on hard working tax paying innocents only wishing to care for their families and live in peace .
In closing I would like to ask that Media and the B.C. government get serious on this scandalous problem and act now . The Citizens/Tax Payers need this tragedy addressed and repaired NOW, we have no time to waste, people are dying and the investigation/commission or whatever takes place needs to be completed this calendar year and it needs to be transparent with frequent updates for the Great Unwashed, the people of B.C. deserve much better than what we are getting from our political masters, their Minions, and a compliant, and complacent Media !!! Not all of you but ……………………………….
The public needs to immediately contact their MLA on this most important subject, we cannot continue to live in crisis .
I am sorry if some do not like my tone with this but as a society, politicians and media we need to resolve this issue along with other sad events with the Residential Schools we are now facing immediately, no time to “Kick the Can Down the Road” and pass the buck waiting for a fix at a far off date which never comes .
It is imperative we do not allow the politicians, Poverty Pimps, Race Pimps SJ Warriors, and other similar groups to “PERPETUATE” these problems, none of this should be left to drag on as happens so often, we need to demand Government solve this now .
AS a people and as a society we should be better than this!
Enjoy the weekend!
