Re: Privatizing helps (SP, Oct. 18). There are so many things wrong with this letter that I don’t know where to begin.
The most glaring error – one that Allie Klassen shares with many people – is that we have “free” schools and health care. What we have are publicly funded schools and health care. There is a huge difference.
As for the private clinics, perhaps Premier Brad Wall should be asked what will happen to them when the surgical backlog is cleared. I am no fan of unions, but in many cases they have legitimate concerns and all governments, of whatever stripe, should have their feet held to the fire.
