Health care or Ralph's wallet care?

Honorable Ralph Klein,
Room 307
Legislative Building,
Edmonton, AB T4K 2C6

Dear Premier:

Your recent announcement regarding your adventure into private health care has been long expected and is noted. Like most of your ideas there is no plan or budget available and no clear idea on what you expect as an outcome.

According to you by 2006 every kid in school will be involved in a physical education system that will save millions of dollars. Have you considered the great number of children that come to school without breakfast and have no lunches?

I’m sure after a few laps around the gym they will be apparent to all.

Your social programs are a shamble. Perhaps you are prepared to put some of these saved millions back into breakfast and lunch programs that were in place some 40 years ago and then cut?

Even though every single reputable study on health care shows without confusion the private funded system is very much more costly than the government public systems and the level of care drops in these same private systems. Pay more and get less with choices about which devil do you want to deal with.

It my mind you are in this for Ralph’s greater glory and to hell with what the pubic has to say about it! You isolate your government from the public by eliminating email contact directly to ministers. You disregard protocol by you and your ministers not answering direct questions and cut the days sitting in legislature to the lowest number of days in Canada. Like many of your schemes you have no clear idea of an outcome, driven by blind idealism without any regard to the well being of the people in this province.

I believe your consistent extreme positions are going to attract very extreme response.

Yours truly,

John Clark
