Re:  Former AHS board member slams Smith in scathing letter; Bringing in administrator is political theatre slightly than resolution: Dagnone, Nov. 19

Article content material

Thanks to Tony Dagnone for the braveness to jot down a letter criticizing Danielle Smith’s determination to fireside the board of Alberta Well being Companies.

Dagnone has been working in hospital administration since earlier than most Albertans have been born. I bear in mind him from his days on the College Hospital (now the Royal College Hospital) in Saskatoon, which he joined in about 1967. He has seen the ups and downs of well being look after over 50 years.

We must be grateful to him, the whole AHS board and all of the well being care professionals within the province. They’ve labored tirelessly by the COVID pandemic and earlier than, often with none thanks or recognition from these in authorities who’re all the time so fast to criticize.

It stays to be seen whether or not progress will be made by a single administrator however I feel most Albertans are skeptical. Let’s hope Premier Smith’s impulsive selections usually are not a sign of issues to come back.

Well being board had probability to repair the system

It’s fascinating to notice that Mr. Dagnone has the audacity to come back out in opposition to the adjustments which were taken with Alberta Well being, with out referring to, in his personal phrases, his years within the well being administration system. He spent years within the administration of Alberta Well being, and through this time, the system has gone from flawed to damaged.

Definitely, COVID had some impact on this, however the system was damaged earlier than that, and he and his board had ample possibilities to make adjustments to enhance it. That has not been completed, and he doesn’t provide alternate options.

Time for change, I’d say. Is it the precise change? I don’t know but it surely won’t be worse than what now we have had for years beneath Dagnone et al.

Canada not on proper monitor with emissions

Re: COP27 goes into time beyond regulation as Canada continues to face criticism on fossil fuels; Guilbeault touts success in phasing out coal and decreasing methane emissions, Nov. 19

Feedback all through the article by Meghan Potkins say Canada must do rather more to cut back our emissions. The final two paragraphs point out Canada has elevated its contribution to world emissions by exporting extra of its coal for energy technology. Canada is investing in reductions by billions of {dollars}.

Look past our borders and focus that cash the place you’d get 10 instances the reductions for each greenback invested. Extra for much less. A pristine Canada alone does little for the world.
