Open letter to B.C. Minister of Health Mike de Jong:
Seeing that your government of B.C. has now cut us off the Airmiles Rewards program as of July 4, 2011, because we the unfortunate are under Pharmacare, why don’t you just be fair and put us seniors in jail and the criminals in a nursing home? This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks. They’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheelchairs etc., and they’d receive money instead of paying it out.
We would have constant video monitoring so we could be helped instantly if we fell or needed assistance.
Bedding would be washed twice a week and all our clothing would be ironed and returned to us. A guard would check on us every 20 minutes and bring meals and snacks to our cell-type rooms.
We would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose. We would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education. Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ’s and legal aid would be free on request. We would have private secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens. Each senior could have a PC a TV, radio and daily phone calls. There would be a board of directors to hear complaints and the help would have a code of conduct strictly adhered to.
The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised. Lights off at 8 p.m. and showers once a week. Left in a tiny room they pay $1,500 per month for, they’d have no hope. Justice for all, we say.
Guess what. I will never vote Liberal again.
