Every night a horror story is written.

Last week, I had to visit Langley Memorial Hospital emergency department. The story was etched not only in the pain and suffering of those in the waiting room. The true nightmarish story was in the eight-hour average waiting time.

The provincial government has proudly announced that the Massy Tunnel replacement on Highway 99 will cost $3.5 billion. Meanwhile in hospitals, taxpayers wait in dismay.

This horror story is inked in the eyes of beleaguered hospital workers who are pushed past their limits. Emergency rooms must triage based on an individual’s needs. Premier Christy Clark’s government prioritizes daily, putting the health of LNG first in line.

Every day, the provincial government pens a story of terror that would make the Brothers Grimm wince.
