The Other Victims of McGuinty’s Green Energy $$$ Vaccuum

From Crux of the Matter

McGuinty government refuses OHIP for blind 2-yr-old Liam Reid US treatment

Of course, officials at the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) say they can’t talk about an individual case due to privacy laws.

Well, fortunately I have no such limitations, given the family has already spoken to reporter Caroline Alphonso at the Globe and Mail.

As Alphonso reports, Liam Reid is two years old and will be fully blind by the time he is four if he doesn’t continue to get treatment by a world renowned surgeon in Michigan — treatment that is not available in Ontario.  And, indeed, Alphonso provides plenty of evidence that the treatment really is not available in Ontario. (H/T NNW)

Anyway, the family has been attending the Michigan clinic for nearly three years now but has run out of money because OHIP refuses to contribute anything towards their costs. Why? Because the McGuinty government is cutting expenses.

Now, normally, one could understand the cut backs, given the size of the Ontario deficit. But, why is the McGuinty government cutting back on health care – be it the out-of-province funding the Reid family needs, or the closure of the Thistletown Regional Centre — when they continue to spend billions of dollars on subsides for wind energy that are costing us far more than we take in?

This little boy is another victim of useless wind power.  Not enough money for his treatment, but more than enough to build another turbine, and another, and another.

By the way, if you live in Ontario, are you aware that Xrays are no longer covered by Ohip.  Unless the reason that the doctor wants the xray is because of cancer, you are out of luck. Haul out your wallets, folks.  We’re getting screwed again.  Wasn’t that what we’re paying that extra Health tax for each year when we do our tax return?  To help preserve services?

And who are the ones who most needs xrays?  The elderly would definitely be one group.  We all know as we get older things get more fragile and break more easily.  Well now, they will have to pay for their xrays.

So every time you drive by a wind turbine, you can say to yourself, “There’s the treatment for Liam Reid standing in that field doing absolutely nothing.”  “There’s 10,000 xrays standing there motionless.”

The lunacy is showing no signs of letting up.  We’ve sacrificed eagles and other endangered species, bats, families, and now we can add little children in need of medical care to that ever growing list of wind victims.  Where and when does it end?

If you are feeling as helpless as the rest of us, maybe think about joining Ontario Neighbours United.  It’s just in the organization stages, but we’re gathering people from across Ontario who want to join our energy, our anger, our rage, our passions and our funds to fight this most despised government in the history of Ontario.
