Bravo to Grace Snider for her piece (“There is no one-size-fits-all solution for continuing care,” May 4) regarding long-term care for Yukon’s seniors.

I agree that the end result would provide a far more suitable and beneficial approach to this public responsibility.

Had the premier, his cabinet and their government advisors had as thoughtful an insight into the subject, the Whistle Bend plan would not have made the list of considerations.
