What do they mean, a taxi from their homes to the airport & the airport to the hospital or everything, including the flight to the hospital? I'm a taxpayer too & to make sick people pay for this type of flight to seek medical treatment is unacceptable. This is a new low & very disturbing. Are they going to let people die because they're poor or elderly? Just one salary from a lucrative political appointment would pay for our sick & elderly to seek medical treatment. I hope the new government, next election, will remember who's making these hairbrained decisions & send them packing along with Dunderdale & cronies. It's their treatment of citizens that are imboldening others to be so cold hearted & cruel to ordinary citizens.

Where else in the province, or country does this happen? If I have to go for an appointment in St Johns I don't think Eatern Health is going to have a bus or a taxi waiting for me. If its an ambulance case, that's different but as for regular transportation it's scandalous that it was ever done! People...govt can't, or should not pay for everything!

Yvonne don't be too upset the welfare people will still have their way paid for by the government, it's only the working people who will have to pay and we have been paying all our lives for those people
