Minister of Health,

Dear Minister:

Re: - No help for the working poor in Diabetes supply assistance.

I am writing as a disenchanted conservative who has spent much time on the election trail for one conservative candidate or another.

The instruction I received in elections was always the same. “Do not bother to go to walk-up apartment buildings. These people are low income people and statistically proven, this group of people do not vote.”

It was explained to me information like this was garnered from the after-election results and proven time and time again. It seems to me the Diabetes organizations would better spend their time getting the lower income group to show up at the vote!

It follows that because they do not vote you have nothing to worry about by shorting their funding. This is why Alberta receives a D- report in help for Diabetes people.

Also these apartment buildings now house people who are of average or higher incomes and because of the housing situation in Alberta cannot yet move into their own homes. Perhaps you should re think the validity of your statistics.
