Has kept up regular appointments every year or so for heart checks.Just last month was told he can’t even have an appointment with a Cardiologist (specialty arrythmias) in Winnipeg until August 2007, which is almost a year. The reason given by the specialist is because there is only one such specialist left in Manitoba.

I guess all the money to hire such a person is being spent on salaries for the various Health Authorities in this province, these people command huge salaries and the health care is worse. The hospitals were doing a fine job of organizing staff and beds and didn’t kick out seniors or refuse help to seniors at that time. Only since we have had managed care are they practicing ageism.
