Come on Burns Lake. It is time to get behind a great thing happening right here in our own community.

For the last 11 months, local volunteers have been tirelessly working to create another medical clinic in our area.

But this clinic will be special, it will be owned by the community and it will work to make sure that our health is in our own hands.

With 21 century technology, the doctors will keep records electronically, receive lab and x-ray information digitally and will be able to set up teleconferences with specialists all over the province.

Northern Health is on board, having written a strong letter of support for the not-for-profit, community owned clinic.

Our local MLA, John Rustad has also expressed strong support.  All we need is support from our own village council and from our own community.

Call the village and let our mayor and council know that you support an initiative that already has one new doctor coming.

Call our MLA and congratulate him on supporting such a good cause.
