I was sitting down reading The Leader (Wednesday, Nov. 4 edition) when I read the first page and saw the article regarding the MRI wait list and the gentleman who has to wait until April 2016 for his scan.
My thought was ‘I would love to have an April date for my son’s MRI.’ He has the date of Aug. 27, 2016.
The medical system is a mess. The government needs to get its act together.

What about Canada’s refugees?
Re: The federal government’s Syrian refugee promise.
Twenty-five thousand refugees, really? Well Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, what do you plan to do to help the 30,000 to 50,000 estimated daily homeless in Canada? We have our own internal refugee problem.
And what about the line-ups at the hospitals? A year’s wait list for an MRI?
Shame on you for your silence. Oh and lest we forget: food banks, drug addictions, child poverty, and of course, aboriginals and their refugee-like lifestyles.
Shame on all you self-serving politicians.
