Do you think it’s fair women now have to drive to Kamloops to give birth?

A weekly streeter from the 100 Mile Free Press

Diane Collens

100 Mile House

“It’s not fair because we want to be a growing community and be able to invite families into our area. It’s a bad drawback for any young families moving here, that they aren’t able to give birth here and have to go to Kamloops.”

Julie Gaudry

100 Mile House

“I don’t think it’s fair. It’s insane. This is a community and we don’t have all of our health care system.”

Jaqueline Humbek

100 Mile House

“No, I don’t think it’s fair because what if they can’t make it? I feel like there should be someone here who can deliver a woman’s child.”

Wendy Hamblin

100 Mile House

“It’s not an acceptable situation. They have to make really serious efforts to recruit someone, even if its temporarily, but it still solves a bit of the problem.”
