Stop bashing docs, nurses and police

Dear Sir:


I, as a longtime resident of the beautiful community called Terrace, am very tired of the negative comments and reports generated about our hospital, our doctors and nursing staff as well as the local RCMP detachment.

People! Try living in a larger community where no one really cares and you are just a number.

I guarantee you will be so thankful for these wonderful people who are here for us and are part of our city. In my experience, the doctors and nurses at Mills Memorial Hospital are the most caring, professional and down-to-earth people ever.

And the majority of the RCMP members are here to protect and serve the public to the best of their ability and resources.

It’s time to start appreciating these folks rather than blaming them and finding fault with everything as they work hard to keep us healthy and safe.

Vivian Raposo,

Terrace, BC
