Potential Loss of Operating Room at Meaford Hospital Cause For Concern

Dear Editor,

Your article regarding possible elimination of operating room services at GBHS Meaford touches on a subject of great concern.

This action has not been caused by the GBHS administration in Owen Sound. Over the past few years, after the provincial government made funding formula adjustments negatively affecting all hospitals in lower density population areas, GBHS was formed and brought several area facilities under one umbrella. They worked diligently to create an efficient, professional, well-run health service while maintaining several small community hospitals. And this was done with balanced budgets. Having made use of the facilities locally and in Owen Sound, I am thankful they were able to accomplish this.

Concern About Lakeview Cemetery

Dear Editor,

It is a crying shame what the Municipality of Meaford executives are letting happen to our Lakeview cemetery.

Because of restructuring of the parks and recreation department no one is currently working at the cemetery.

The person that was there has been sent to work at the arena. The garbage cans are full, the watering cans are still out. The fountain is still running and should be shut off and put away for the winter and the leaves need to be taken care of.

Reader Offers Thoughts on OSNGUPL & MPL Board Standoff


This issue is about money and power and the after-effects of a botched amalgamation.
Without Sydenham's tax dollars Meaford would not have a refurbished town hall or a new library building. Without amalgamation Owen Sound library would not be fighting Meaford for Sydenham tax dollars. For many years Sydenham alone was able to fund its library usage.

Now Meaford claims Owen Sound is inflating user numbers and refusing to provide details of library card holders usage. Owen Sound claims library usage is actually higher than the provided number of card holders because multiple persons often borrow on the same card, and that providing card holders' names and addresses is confidential information requiring signed release.
