Campaign question 2: Jason Phillips (council candidate)

What are your priorities for improving social or community services?
Bluntly, the biggest hole in our community services right now is that urgent care closes.
It is past time for council to start fighting for 24-hour urgent care in Cochrane.
As a parent, I have personally experienced the downside of not having 24-hr care in Cochrane.
Having made the 30-minute drive into the city with a screaming child at 2 a.m., then waiting four hours to see a doctor, I can tell you it was not a pleasant experience. The safety net and value of having 24-hour care provided to our seniors, children and entire town as a whole would be immeasurably valuable!
When it comes to health emergencies, Calgary is too far away to count on.
