CALGARY – Today, Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley released the following statement regarding the future of the Calgary Cancer Centre.
“This PC government has long neglected the health care needs of Albertans. A state-of-the-art cancer centre with the capacity to help southern Albertans has been badly needed for years, and the longer we wait the more we risk compromising their care,” Notley said.
“The PC government has consistently failed to move our province forward in the good times, and I for one am very concerned about what is in store during the Prentice times.”
“Cancer is a traumatic enough experience without having to worry if your treatment will be delayed or undermined because of overcrowding and failing infrastructure issues. It’s time for our infrastructure to match the fundamental demands of our growing province.”
