CBC radio program takes up the issue

Dr. Brian Goldman is a veteran ER physician and one of Canada’s most trusted medical broadcasters, and is host of the program “White Coat, Black Art” on CBC  Radio One. An entire episode of the popular program, aired October 28th, 2011, was dedicated to the issue of parking fees at hospitals after Dr. Goldman himself experienced the shock of paying out hundreds of dollars to visit his ailing father.

The episode covered the matter thoroughly and is available streamed online at http://www.cbc.ca/whitecoat/blog/2011/10/28/park-your-frustration-show/.

Following the airing of the story, an unprecented number of listeners responded with their own experiences. Those responses are found at the site above and at Dr. Goldman’s blog site here: http://www.cbc.ca/whitecoat/blog/2011/11/15/park-your-frustration-mailbag/

and here http://www.cbc.ca/whitecoat/blog/2011/11/28/park-your-frustration-even-more/

The pent up frustration, pain and sense of injustice is growing in the Canadian public.

We call upon the policy makers to implement fair parking charges at public health institutions immediately.
