Letter to the Editor:
Never give up
Well, we are a step closer to the LTC beds required for Sioux Lookout following the recent announcement at the Meno Ya Win Health Center. I would like to personally thank all of the previous mayors and councillors for their constant meetings with all of the MPPs that they have met with over the years begging for the finally announced beds.
Thanks to the members of the advocacy group for long term care whom over the past few months have written many letters and interviewed the many citizens of Sioux Lookout who have related their stories to us on the need for more LTC beds.
I know at times that all of us have wondered if all our efforts were fruitless or not but as the saying goes, “never ever give up”.
Again, thank you to all who have devoted time, effort, and energy for the final announcement for the LTC beds.
Now we just have to wait for the next big event (shovel in the ground).
Dennis Leney, Chair Advocacy group for LTC
