    Catch the ace draw

    I mentioned that my town is having to raise money for new x-ray equipt. They needed 100,000, so far this draw has raised 1.5m. The 1st prize tonight if your name is picked, will be around 80,000, the prize if you pick the right envelope, be around 1 million. We also had a bad accident with 2 young lads in very bad shape, we are collecting prizes for a due this weekend , the stuff people are bringing here is top line. This town always looks after its own. Very proud.

    With the surplus funds, you should consider making a donation to the 4 Ontario Teachers Unions.

    For the kids.

    LOL.The town is having a dance this weekend to raise money for 2 lads seriously hurt a few days ago in a crash. We are the drop off point for prizes, the people of this town are very generous. A 58in tv just came in and the quality of the prizes are top drawer. Great little town.

    Still going . A guy won 81,000. The main pot would have been 1.1m if he pulled the ace of spades. Hosp has now been given 1.6m

    Wait... I thought a single payer system would allow hospitals to purchase the latest equipment?

    Not that easy. Now we have been lucky to have a top CEO running out hosp. My understanding 1 of 2 that are not in debt in Ont. But for the new x-ray room we needed $700,000 and the government pays the rest.

    Doing some tweaking. But the problem with you is you have no understanding of debt and what it does. You don't like what is going on, go after the liberals that bankrupt the province and forced this sort of action.

    but i do, actually. just not on here (i do on twitter). both the conservatives and the liberals have contributed to the current state of ontario, however the conservatives are the ones in power now, and to gloss over the damage they're currently doing to the healthcare system just to talk about the liberals more helps nobody, yannow?

    The problem with health care is we need more running shoes and less high heels in the hosp. When your province is in worse shape then the state of California, you have serious trouble. Let me guess you are all for teachers getting what they want?
