Edward Redshaw added 2 new photos. 8 hrs · Every morning I read the Edmonton Journal to see what wonders it will reveal. I am seldom disappointed. Today was. O exception. Premier Notley has put together an amazing team. A Finance Minister who is following the words of an old song "another day older and deeper in debt". A Health Minister who as the auditor general said is doing everything piecemeal. She has no idea of how to integrate a system and obviously not consulting with wiser heads. Having only a school board background with no medical experience does not help. An Education Minister who keeps trying to change everything. What makes matters worse is that the government keeps asking for public input. Wake up people the only reason for that is when everything collapses they can pass the buck to us saying that they were only doing what Albertans asked them to do. Sad.

Marilyn McCulloch Sarah Hoffman is incompetent & refuses to address the systematic problems in our fragmented health "care" system!
IMO - Rachel Notley had the perfect opportunity to appoint Dr. David Swann to be our Health Minister, a politician of immense knowledge, i
ntegrity & compassion who has suggested many avenues in which to fix our cruel & inefficient system - including Long Term Care! Rachel would have made an admirable non-political choice in appointing Dr. Swann. Our immeasurable loss!

Julie Ali The reason Ms. Hoffman is the health minister and not someone with actual medical system background like Bob Turner (my MLA) is because she is being groomed to be the next leader of the NDP folks. It's curious that she is in charge of this major portfolio because so far she hasn't provided very effective leadership. If we just consider the Pure North fiasco she has continued (in my opinion) the poor decision making of the Horne guy of throwing our money away on this placebo health program. It's a problem that will only be rectified when we fire the entire crew in the next provincial election.
I have yet to see any changes in the mental health system despite the presence of directed money provided by the federal government. The needs of the mentally ill are acute and have been ignored in Alberta for decades. It's shameful.

Edward Redshaw Rachel Notley has on political blinders. Same thing with BC she should have supported Clark. She appoints incompetents instead of the best.

Julie Ali The only input that is required is what has already been decided upon. For example if we consider the documents created by the folks at AHS regarding banning they didn't ask the people who were banned like me for our opinions. Nope. They just went ahead and made their policy and procedure without any information required by the citizens who were banned. It's clear to me that the good old Tory ways of consulting after the decisions are already made continues to this very day in the similarly ineffectual NDP folks who are running a province like inept children.
