Earlier, we reported the provincial Liberals would hosting their own conversation on health at the party's biennial convention. And, during that discussion, Premier Gordon Campbell announced he'd "like to have some regional get-togethers with the party membership and talk about this...in the New Year - so everyone gets a chance to do some roundtabling, some brainstorming and develop some recommendations we might be able to add to the conversation." A laudable suggestion, to be sure. But could this have anything to do with the fact the province's conversation on health has only received 917 written submissions to-date, excluding comments posted on its online forum.
