Can someone explain to me how it’s anyone’s advantage for the government to underfund the local hospital? Few people ever want to go to the hospital, but when they do, it’s better if they can access services as much as possible locally where friends and family can visit and they are near to home.

Can someone explain to me how it’s anyone’s advantage for the government to underfund the local hospital? Few people ever want to go to the hospital, but when they do, it’s better if they can access services as much as possible locally where friends and family can visit and they are near to home.
The ongoing attrition program seems set on eliminating this hospital,
department-by-department, in favour of everyone commuting to Hull or Gatineau
for all medical needs. I’m not a fan of remote-controlled bureaucracy, but it seems I’m living in the wrong province in that regard.
It’s a good idea to localize the beginning and end of life, but if the government is bent on taking down the local facility, life may have to take a different direction. My
sister-in-law delivered four children at home. They all grew and thrived, and now have children of their own. Maybe it’s time to re-develop midwifery, to reclaim that part of life which used to belong to the home community.
