FEATURED COMMENT – Marching in the streets only way to change things

Re: editorial “Don’t take any bafflegab from candidates.”

The global elites own all the mining companies and if they want all the gold out of these hills, they will take it and no government here at the city level or the provincial or federal level will have a say….Unless we get tens of thousands of people to protest nothing will happen for the people.

Same with the health care issue. It’s unacceptable and disgusting that it has deteriorated to what it is today. Terry Lake should just keep silent as he can and will not do a thing because he has no power to do anything. Regionalizing was a mistake. It didn’t work in the days of Hitler (that is just exactly what he did) and it won’t work now. All the money goes into administration and patient care is at the bottom and don’t dare mention that if you work in the industry, or you just might lose your job.

We should be marching by the tens of thousands in protest of this medical industrial complex but people don’t have the guts. We are not the best health care in the world either….that is a fallacy. We used to be ranked 2nd about 30 years ago or more, we are ranked about 32nd now and that is not good. In fact statistics say the health system is the 3rd leading cause of death in North America, with mistakes that are made by doctors, hospitals and mainly the pharmaceuticals that are given that cause a host of problems.

Voting is one big farce and if it really made a difference, we wouldn’t be allowed to do it.
