                                        OUR OPINION
   Plan for change in surgical
   services needs examination
         he SE Local Health Integration Network is playing with the
         idea of consolidating surgical services in various hospitals
         across eastern Ontario.
  Although this could save the province a few bucks in the long
run, it is not worth the complications it will create for both our ag-
ing population and our young families.
  As people grow older, mobility becomes a greater challenge. It
unfair to expect our elderly to have to commute from Smiths Falls,
or Perth, to Kingston or Belleville, to receive surgeries they may
  Keeping services farther away can increase levels of anxiety and
stress, which can lead to further health complications.
  It also puts additional pressure on their families, since they may
need to transport them to the hospital.
  Younger families and individuals may face similar challenges
when it comes to mobility.
  It places unnecessary stress on parents with small children to
have to drive an extra two or three hours for surgery. If the parents
don’t know anyone in the area they may be forced to incur addi-
tional costs, such as hotel stays, in addition to the extra gas they
are burning.
  Young parents in our area need every dollar they have. They
shouldn’t be forced to spend additional money just to receive the
same services they have currently.
  Smiths Falls and Perth are both communities that are home to a
large number of elderly residents that require services to be close
by. And they’re not alone.
  Members of Lanark County council have expressed their con-
cern for keeping a variety of surgical services available to resi-
dents in the area.
  Canada’s elderly have already put in their time at the punch
clock, and have earned the right to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
That includes having essential services available to them when-
ever necessary.
  The surgical services plan needs further examination.

On June 3, local MPP Randy Hillier met with members of the Ontario Federation of Independent Towers and tow truck operators from all over Lanark County and beyond,
to hear their concerns about a recent move by the provincial government that could see Ontario divvied into 56 zones, each exclusively served by a single provider of vehicle
impoundment services. These operators are concerned about the move’s implications on local service delivery, and how it could restrict competition between businesses,

Participants in the Eastern Regional Medical Education Program, started up by local Dr. Ross McLean,
conclude their week-long placement in the area with a dinner at Maximilian Dining Lounge on June
2. These first-year medical students from Queen’s University completed a week of job-shadowing with
doctors in Lanark County to get a first-hand taste of practicing medicine in rural communities, in hopes
they may return for longer placements later on. Pictured here are, from left, Sarah Felder, Tess Sudenis,
