Stop the foot dragging

Fri, 2006-12-22 09:00

Peter Hadekel writes in the Gazette that the Charest government needs the resolve to move ahead with the necessary funding for the MUHC and CHUM projects. According to Hadekel, not only does the foot dragging add to the bills, it's encouraging opponents to step forward with claims that the heavily indebted province simply can't afford to finance two superhospitals at the same time. Hadekel points out the economic impact the projects would have on the city's knowledge economy, with two state-of-the-art teaching hospitals. They would allow Montreal to remain in the game of attracting some of the brightest medical minds in the world.
