Physicians, Heal Thyselves

Guess what, everybody: In Ontario, unions are worth more than doctors. I know that thought might not exactly sit well with some of you but it's really the only way you can interpret the fact that unions get secret pay raises from Dalton, but doctors have to take a pay cut.

Look at how much those doctors make. What have they done for us lately? Just saving people's lives? With Ontario being hit the hard by the recession, we can't just continue to pay those doctors what they've been getting for sitting around all day helping people get well. It's an embarassment of riches! Doctors save lives, but unions save McGuinty's bacon during elections! And which do you think is more important to the future of this province?

Poor, defenceless striking unions are getting their bluff called down in London while these doctors, such as ex-ORNGE CEO Chris Mazza, are laughing all the way to the bank! It's an absolutely terrible situation that was allowed to continue for years until Deb Matthews decided today that it was inexcusable and couldn't be allowed to continue!

Wait, wait. I'm forgetting that in Dalton's Ontario, None of Us Is As Strong As All Of Us. Remember that just because doctors have specialized skills and do work that nobody else wants to do, they shouldn't be making more than union leaders like John Mandarino , who "breached contract tendering rules, lost government training grants, broke cheque-signing policies and charged unauthorized personal expenses without proper accounting" and made $255,000 a year for his trouble. That's equity for you.

  1. Funny how they are all over the gross payments to doctors, but totally fail to mention expenses incurred. Not all doctors have to maintain and staff an office, but most do. It would be much more instructive to see the actual 'take home pay' of the GP's and others and compare that to union executive and senior politicians.
