THIS Tuesday our councillors will vote on the important issue of the future of aged care in Canning.
The single and most important concern in the abolition fiasco was to ensure the level of excellence and control of the care that was given to our aged, disabled and disadvantaged was maintained.
I, like many, marched, protested, gained signatures and displayed my loyalty at every corner because I believe in our city and wanted us to continue to grow and be given the chance to shine.
I am appalled that uncaring governments can put a blanket change on those most vulnerable in our society. I was disappointed to read that the submissions made were in some way skewed.
I urge the councillors to think very long and hard on this matter – it is not something to be rushed. It is too important for our city’s future and reputation.
We are the model all councils should be using rather than contract everything out and wash their hands of those who have built and created their local communities.
