Liberal Hopeful Michael Ignatieff weighed into the Danny Williams surgery decision. The Newfoundland premier chose to have heart surgery in the US which drew sharp criticism.
Mr. Ignatieff interviewed in Moncton New Brunswick said that:
“…He would not have done it, but Michael Ignatieff feels Danny Williams’ decision to get health treatment in the US, is a personal decision.”
That’s pretty darn milquetoast if you ask me. Either you stand behind medicare or you don’t. Either you believe in its destruction or you don’t. You either believe in a two tiered mess or you don’t.
It would be good to see a Federal leadership hopeful take a stand instead of poofting out non speak answers.
As I type this in Cornwall Ontario we’re facing cuts to services that we need in this city. I for one want to support politicians that take tough and strong stands to protect medicare and to revitalize it. It needs to be overhauled and saved; not personally chosen all willy nilly.
