Quiet Moments

Version 2

A resident in our long term care facility likes to eat his lunch in the hallway of the hospital where he can look at a mural. Edward Staples, President of SOHC, made the ceramic tile mural and donated it to the hospital. The mural, entitled Emerge, depicts an iconic and very familiar place in Princeton.

Petition in support of fair taxes for our docs

September 13, 2017

tax-too-much
Proposed changes to federal corporate income tax laws have the potential to destabilize our already fragile health care service.

Dan Albas, our Member of Parliament (Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola), is sponsoring a petition initiated by Dr. Geoffrey Sanz of Kelowna. The following is from an email to SOHC from MP Albas: “I too am very concerned. I have been speaking to MDs and small business owners from across our riding and the country. Obviously any new legislation will be hotly contested by me in Parliament but many people want to help their physician or make their point directly to the Government.”

Please sign the petition in support of our local doctors.
