Thank you for your expeditious reply clarifying that action is being taken by the municipal councillors to rectify provincial government policies relating to Long-Term-Care facilities because of their ongoing disastrous mortality rates. The limitations and constraints imposed on what you can ask of the government at this time are understandable but we urge you to continue your efforts to affect change.
It would be an indignity and inhumane if we were to accept the provincial government policies as they currently stand. The Premier and the appropriate Ministries must not only be held accountable for what our long-term residents suffer and experience but they must be made aware that that kind of work by elected politicians is unacceptable.
The mandate given by our system means termination of incompetent and incapable public servants may not be possible until the term of office concludes. However, the public should be constantly reminded when and if such incompetence and incapacity in elected offices exist.
We cannot, should not and will not accept these elected officials being so derelict in their public office duties and civic responsibilities.
Let us continually remind the voters of public officials who demonstrate incompetence and dereliction of duty. Let us remember those who have gone. They may be gone, but they are not forgotten.
