(THE NEWS/files) Impark manages Ridge Meadows Hospital parking lot.

Letter: ‘Where is deal for hospital visitors?’

‘Forced to pay outrageous parking fees.’

Editor, The News:

So the Provincial Health Service Authority has signed a $14.5-million deal with the multi-wealthy, monopoly parking corporation Impark. Good deal for the parking corporation.

Where is the deal for the poor hospital visitors, who are forced to pay these outrageous parking fees and get stressed out when not knowing what the waiting time at the emergency department will be and on top having to deal with malfunctioning ticket machines.

This really proves that governments don’t give a damn about the welfare of patients and visitors. They seem to be more interested in the welfare of wealthy parking monopolies.
