After leaving Abbotsford decades ago, I again visited my sick friend in Abbotsford General Hospital last weekend.
I was delighted to see their new hospital, and wished we could have the same in Burnaby.
I believe it is a very expensive project, but with almost $600 million in reserve by the city council, we can afford it with the co-operation of the federal and the provincial government.
It is surely a better investment than giving 'Band-Aid' solutions to our decaying hospital.
