Cornwall ON – If you click Cornwall Ontario City Councilor Syd Gardiner’s picture above you can listen to our near hour long interview. Syd has a passion for a subject that I do and that’s Medicare and saving the system.
We talked about how the cut backs at the Cornwall Hospital are Voodoo Economics that simply are going to cause hardship for residents of the area by forcing them to travel to Ottawa or elsewhere for treatments that should be done here in Cornwall; especially after the community came to the plate and wrote the cheques to pay for the new hospital.
Why should pacemaker patients have to travel when we have the services right here? And recovering from a heart attack, stroke, or joint replacement surgery is stressful enough without having to juggle going to Ottawa and risking catching the latest super bug there.
We also talked about the difficulties in expanding the Cornwall Airport and the jobs expected to arrive, as well as the waterfront of Cornwall and its future.
Syd also shared a not so secret that he’ll be running again for Council. He also said that if enough of you post in the poll below he’ll join us again on Seawayradio.com in a few weeks.
