An interesting read in the Halifax Herald Friday, as SouthWest Health CELEBRATES their ability to have no ER closures in September. Somehow, SouthWest Health sees this as a GOOD thing, a moment for celebration. And congratulations to them, because they have had issues with ER closures for quite some time.

And at the same time, we struggle locally to understand why OUR Annapolis Valley Health does not have the same goals, to have maximum possible ER accessibility for their constituents. Instead they seem more than content with having the Annapolis Royal ER closed two days a week for the foreseeable future unnecessarily. Why is that?
