Aren't we better off if she's distracted and not doing anything government related?

I get a strong "fake work vibe" from this, like from her hero down south...

only 30 mins

Congrats


The last time I needed routine blood work (over 50 physical) it was two months down the road till I could get an appointment, then 60 mins behind schedule.

For what turned out to be less than 10 mins of time, because the lab tech that took me back was exceptional.

Man, what if they combine this with a "I didn't do it" defense?

If they're smart enough to go that route, I can't see any way Shandro isn't 100% vindicated here.

Well I did book this appointment 2 months ago...I imagine they'll be 60 min behind by 11. There appears to be far fewer employees than when APL ran it.


They've also completely lost the ability to track standing orders so you have to remember to bring it every time. Not a huge deal, but come on. It's 2023. Figure it out already. We shouldn't even need paper reqs. We have this thing called computers now, that can talk to each other.

From a short term pain for long term gain perspective I think we need her giving people as many reasons as possible to not vote this party back in 4 years from now.

That's a stupid risk to take. If you don't know who Smith is by now, you never will. She won an election, the only conclusion is that the voters get what they deserve. Hopefully some of them get it sooner.

I dunno, I got the sense that he doesn't care about getting disbarred or other reprimands, as long as the tribunal will acknowledge that HE WAS NOT CRYING!!!!

I've needed bloodwork for 3 or 4 weeks for a specialist appointment I have today and haven't been able to get it. Sat in the waiting room for 3+ hours twice and had to leave.

It's absolutely ridiculous, compromises care, and with all these people sitting around every day not working is probably costing the economy more than any imaginary savings from this gift to Albertans. I don't know how you can #### up this bad in 6 months but they sure found a way. At this point I can't even blame the UCP though, this is all on UCP voters. Hopefully they get some good suffering time in to reconsider their choices.

I had to wait outside for my bloodwork, though that was mostly by choice as their AC was broken and it was cooler outside at 29 than inside.

They had a number of the portable ACs but the hoses were going up above the false ceiling, I don't know if they were actually exhausting outside or not.. if not someone should tell them they're just making it worse.

Only about a 15 minute wait for my appt, but I went out the Strathmore where at the time they were only booking 1 month out.
