Letter to the Editor:
Long term care beds
On behalf of the long-term care advocacy committee for the additional long-term care beds for Sioux Lookout we would like to thank all of the citizens of Sioux Lookout that came to the meeting on February 9 at the seniors activity centre.
All of the stories that we received, either in person or dropped off, have been forwarded to the appropriate ministers. As well, they have been taken by the consultant that has been hired by the government to report on interim care and housing strategy for Sioux Lookout and surrounding area.
With the provincial Liberal government promising thousands of beds across the province in this election year we can see a small light at the end of the tunnel but only time will tell. You can be assured that this advocacy committee will continue to seek all avenues for the 96 long term care beds that we so urgently need in this town, and keep you up to date on any new news.
Again, thank you to all who submitted their concerns.
Dennis Leney, Advocacy Committee for LTC
