It is my opinion that even if the clinic is to be staffed by a yet unnamed physician, they are not off the hook. The Board has missed the point. The community deserves more. Poor management will have a long term impact on health care delivery and the frictions created will live on long after the crisis is forgotten. It also does not excuse the mistreatment of one of our community under any circumstance.
If the board does not understand the error in their ways, that is their problem. Our problem is getting the community involved in an meaningful way, electing a new slate of Directors for the CCHA, establishing a vision and heading in the selected direction with openness and integrity. Maybe we do not need to know all the details. Truths are sometimes hard to separate from myths and the discussions can be unnecessarily distructive. Let's instead concentrate on moving forward.
The Societies Act is our friend. We can demand accountability and change.
