I usually try to avoid horse-race or speculative political blogging, but I think it bears emphasizing that Tony Clement has made 2 Health Care wait time guarantees in two days, today’s with Liberally-governed Ontario.
Yesterday’s was for radiation treatment, today’s is for Cataract surgery. It would be interesting to see what the current maximum wait time is, as well as the median and mean wait time, both of which are not in the press releases or the basic news articles that I read. No word, ofcourse, for those that are waiting for an MRI, hip or knee surgery, or to see some other sort of specialist.
No word either for those that are trying to find themselves a family doctor, rather than rely on the mediocrity that is Clinic care.
Promises Made, Efforts to make promises look kept.
