Agree with Mr. Bates,but this should be brought to a public refurendum due to the shady manner it underwent.Nobody will get up Ryan rd. hill in heavy snowfall as snow removal can not be relied on.Cumberland interchange is the logical spot with good access to the highway for emergencies.

This is a site of convenience for a few not one of common sense.

I agree with Mr.Bates as well. I actually breathed a sigh of relief that someone can seen that lack of intelligance behind this paln. The first location would offer us way more in terms of equipment and if they made it a training hospital we could have specialist and care that we normally would not have available unless we hoofed it to the mainland. The best part is if it was made into a training hospital we would also have those extra specialized services and doctors at less overall cost as the government would fund a lot of it!! Some sense hopefully comes through here soon, before a mistake is made!!

Ryan Road is the road connecting Courtenay and the Comox air base. There's already a general hospital at Comox Avenue close to Courtenay, so Comox & Courtenay shouldn't need another hospital.

Everyone knows where St Joe's hospital is, stupid. What is being discussed is a new, replacement hospital for the Comox Valley, , not an additional hospital
