In South Surrey, at the corner of 16 Avenue and 156 Street, there are two hospital parking lots.
One has been there for many years and provides income for health care, I presume.
The second lot has been there for around four years and was constructed to hold probably 200-250 cars.
In the years since this lot was built: nobody uses it; nobody parks in it; and it provides no income for the hospital.
I can’t get into the hospital for a surgery without waiting forever and, out of necessity, have to pay a surgeon in a private clinic.
Yet huge amounts of money can be spent on useless items, such as this parking lot.
I can imagine how many surgeries could have been covered and people’s health improved if this money had been put to proper use.
I would be curious to know what enlightened soul was allowed to make the decision to waste money – that could be put to health care – on this dead-end project.
