I sure hope Sophie gets the help she needs

Some wag commented on this story: “An ailing 94-year-old Second World War vet’s bid to get a bed at a veterans’ hospital has been thwarted by the federal government … Veterans Affairs refused to admit [94 year old Petter Blindheim to the Camp Hill Veterans’ Memorial hospital in Halifax, despite there being 13 empty beds there] because he was a “resistance” fighter — not a veteran of Allied forces. After Germany invaded Norway in 1940, the Royal Norwegian Army fled to the United Kingdom, which it used as a base for the duration of the war.”

The wag’s comment was: “I sure hope Sophie is getting the help she needs.

It’s a bit unfair but it goes back to my thoughts about this government being “tone deaf” and about Minister Kent Hehr being “just not ready.
