It has been wonderful to follow the discussions as a result of the letter by Dr. Ron about why we “cannot attract doctors to our community".
[Much of this discussion is happening on the Digby County Courier Facebook group. Ed's note.]
First, it does truly please me to see the number of people that are so passionate about their home.
Let's not forget first we do have a new doctor in our town and over the next 12 months we will have three more joining us.
But I do note with interest that the author of this letter is a doctor who did make the choice to become a valuable member of our community.
To know the reasons why he chose Digby would be helpful as we continue to improve our health care.
Other initiatives the town is undertaking include an organizational review which will soon be presented to the public.
Also there will be a presentation on the challenges facing towns in Nova Scotia and the public will be invited to participate in the budget process.
Look for those dates over the next few months.
