9 Questions to the Candidates by SOHC

August 1, 2012

This past week Save Our Hospital Coalition conducted interviews with the two candidates for mayor, Rosemary Doughty and Frank Armitage, and the two candidates for councillor, Doug Pateman and Rob Rubis. Each candidate was asked nine questions regarding health care issues in our community. Here are the results of those interviews.

Question 1: If you become mayor/councillor, where would you place the health care issue on your list of priorities for Princeton?

Rosemary Doughty (RD): Health care would be my first priority. When I go door to door it is the only thing that people talk about. Whatever the community wants is what I would stand for.

When I went to the ER closure demonstrations, I did not see the Mayor or Council there. I would like to see Council start a monthly open information session where they share with Princeton residents what they are doing and planning to do. If I become mayor, I would like to give more information and share more information. Leadership and being pro-active are part of my platform. Read more »

Time to look at regulations

May 12, 2012

The governments both federally and provincially need to start looking at how we attract doctors. Why would a doctor who was trained at Oxford not be able to work in Canada?
