County citizens rally for hospital at Queen’s Park

Queens-Park-PEC-Hospital-Rally-1Prince Edward County residents boarded four buses to rally for their hospital at Queen’s Park Wednesday. Almost 200 citizens in attendance broke out in short “save our hospital” chants, but were noted for their calm demonstration and were told they were “welcome back any time”.

The core committee of the Patrons of our County Hospital (POOCH), reported a short, but good discussion with Health Minister Deb Matthews, local MPP Todd Smith and Conservative party health critic Christine Elliott. The group handed over its petition – signed by 5,520 citizens – to Smith, who said he would present it tomorrow in the legislature.

    As one of the participants on a fabulous sunny day it was very worth while attending. The organization of the whole bus trip was overwhelming . By us all pulling together someone has to listen to our slogan . WE WANT OUR HOSPITAL BACK! If I have to go on another bus trip I WILL! THANK YOU THANK YOU to all volunteers.
