A month or so ago Mr. Horgan did a grand opening of the Pacific Wellness Center in Colwood. He said they have doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, etc. and are able to do a lot of testing on site. He said people without a family doctor could get a continuum of care there. Smiles all around.
I went down there today as my doctor's office is closed. The medical facility is empty, no doctors, no nurses, no equipment, no furniture and with a lease sign in the window. Horgan made it sound like the province was providing all this "extra" care into the community when all they did was pony up cash to build a structure and then hope some doctors rent it from them. Politicians, sheesh. I guess I should have listened more carefully as he probably made use of a few weasel words so it wasn't an outright lie.
