Jeff Allan is discussing the McGuinty government's election promise to fund PSA tests. Ontario men are still waiting. Jeff was actually instrumental in bringing forward this promise, which Dalton McGuinty announced on his show.
Local MPP John Milloy was interviewed and said that it will take some time to enact this promise, but that they are working towards it - obviously at a snail's pace.
How is it that a holiday, which is still having negative repercussions, can be decreed practically overnight, but the public funding of a potentially life-saving test takes plodding deliberation and consultation?
How many men are holding off getting this test done until the Liberal government actually fulfills its promise? How many men will die because of that wait? Making this promise and not carrying it out immediately is far worse than never having made it in the first place.
If covering the test would be too expensive, why did Dalton make this promise???
Perhaps the MPPs could vote to revoke their raises.
Or else use some of that notorious Health Tax, which mainly goes into 'general revenues'.
