Resident questions the Interior Health Authority's plans to privatize laundry services

Apparently the Interior Health Authority is set upon amalgamating the laundry facilities. I wonder if they know about Toronto’s foray into this field.

They amalgamated their laundry facilities with the idea that they would save money. I think they had second thoughts when the cost doubled. I think they had third thoughts when the cost tripled.

Unfortunately for them, tripling wasn’t the end of their problems as the costs continued to skyrocket past tripling.

How about investigating this and re-thinking this proposal?

Remember, this is not ordinary laundry, it is hazardous hospital products that require much more attention to quality.

Do we really want a low bidder to do this work?
