Re:Private partners can help reduce latency. British Columbia Healthcare Issues Prior to the Pandemic

In addition to the June 15th column, we want to shed light on waiting times from the perspective of healthcare consumers. think.

When introduced on March 4, the time it took to discover that the arthritic hip joint could be the cause of my ongoing pain (two and a half years, various) Don't worry about specialists and injections). I received a hip evaluation at Richmond Health Service on April 7th. Then I met the surgeon on May 3rd. Instead of waiting for June, I frozen my hips on May 12 to determine if surgery would help with pain. It takes a few weeks to two months to do it at Richmond General. On June 1st, the surgeon decided that I would benefit from total hip arthroplasty and was sent to fill out a form. He was told that he was more likely to have surgery in late fall / early winter, half a year later.

The number of people on the same boat as me, waiting to be one of the 88,300 people suffering from the waiting list.

When I read Nathan Griffith's article, it's very much that Metro Park needs to be accessible by bus and bicycle. It was sad. Of course yes, but when will this happen? First, include in your Burnaby transportation plan, where I live, a route that allows you to safely leave your home by bike and access the park via slow streets and bike lanes. Today, too many people are afraid to ride in a local park from their home. Citizens do not need to occupy road space if they have local access to safe, slow streets and even separate bike paths. Driving to the park to ride a bike is very 20th century. My suggestion reduces the need for parking space and no more trees need to fall to make room for a huge SUV on the road. Buses can carry many people, but currently they can only carry two bicycles at a time. But let's speed this up too.

How about a bicycle bus that can carry up to 20 or more bicycles and people at one time? Roll-on / roll-off ideas. Where is all the cash to bankroll these great cheap ideas?

Don't spend too much money on a multi-billion dollar white elephant called SkyTrain. Spend more on separate bike paths and pedestrian walkways. I think this is expensive. Climate change will cost us even more if we don't do something right away to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Federal pensions are not properly adjusted

One of the major impacts on the cost of living for the elderly The government respects its commitment to keep federal pensions catching up with inflation. When inflation in January was already above 5%, the government adjusted OAS and CPP by only 2.7%. This is only half the actual inflation rate. The claim was that inflation was short-term and would obviously go away.

Well, inflation hasn't disappeared. We are in the middle of the year and are eaten alive due to the cost of food and fuel.

If the government really wants to support the living expenses of the elderly, the government will respect our commitment and further adjust our living expenses to pace the adjustment of pension living expenses. You can match it. The only source of income.
