I was so disgusted, sad and disappointed by the protest at Sechelt Hospital (“Freedom to work rally,” Sept. 3). The same people who do things like that are the very same who are only too happy to receive emergency care when they fall ill with COVID or are critically injured. And here they are, insulting the very people whose job it is to save their lives. I shake my head at the irrationality of it all. No wonder so many people in the health sector are resigning or going on sick leave.
We are becoming more and more like U.S. citizens. It’s more and more about our individual rights and less and less about the rights of the community, isn’t it? I used to be so proud of being a Canadian – what is happening to us? We’re becoming so selfish.
