QUESTION ADDRESSED TO MORINVILLE SCHOOL MAYORAL AND COUNCIL CANDIDATES
I attended the Forum on October 13th and I think almost every candidate, if not every candidate, spoke on the need for people to shop locally and to support our local businesses. I moved here in October 2008. I called both health clinics in Morinville to see how to get my family a doctor right here in Morinville or even if there was a walk in clinic. The response I got from the first clinic was to call the other clinic and the response I received from the second clinic was to continue to see the doctor that I currently had. Now this is an interesting response because the person on the other end didn’t even know where I moved from. So it is interesting to see all the candidates preach about the importance of staying in Morinville for all of our shopping needs, when a basic need isn’t even met. My husband and I are both lucky enough to live in Morinville and work in Morinville, so it is very frustrating that we have to drive to the south side of Edmonton to see a doctor when we are ill or even for a check up. What will you do in the next three years to support our needs for more medical attention in Morinville?
