Hospital overcrowding

Tell me Mr. Foster, if you and the Liberals are so concerned now about more hospital beds, why are the two floors of the new tower at VJH only shelled in?  

No equipment, no staff, no budget. So why even mention them? 

Perhaps when the Liberals were spending billions on the Olympics and now the new B.C. Place roof, they just might have given a thought to the voters of BC who have seen hospitals closed in rural areas and very few long-term facilities built.  

There is no shortage of staff.  A lot of nurses would love to have a fulltime line, but work on call, due to lack of budget. So let’s put the true facts out there, not a “everything is rosy, cause I am now concerned” press release.
