Although we may wish to demonize our hospital board for their suggestion to close our O.R. it really has little to do with them. They are simply under a gun imposed by the present Liberal government and are being forced into making unpleasant decisions which causes a storm of local protest, thus diverting attention from what is really at stake.

Their answer is to gut rural Ontario.
