Canada's New Wait-list Czar

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority's (WRHA) Dr. Brian Postl has been appointed Canada's new wait-list czar. Earning a respectable $352,000 plus at the WRHA, Dr. Postl has implemented a unique way to "reduce" hospital wait times in Winnipeg, the only problem is, he's forgetting to count the patients!

Lets be honest here - the government promised money into health care; the fine print indicated that most, if not all of it, is going into a bloated bureaucracy. Like medicine needs yet another level of bureuacurats. Canadians and the provincial politicians should have been outraged at the proposals from last year - I was never anything beyond a what we're getting now. I fully expect the "national childcare" initiative to be yet another bureaucracy thats going to end up making child care more expensive not less!! I only hope that organizations like this will continue to expose these fraudulent schemes for what they are ... A waste of taxpayers money.
