CALGARY — The merits of Alberta’s medicare is coming under fire from a Calgary man whose stroke-stricken grandmother has been ordered to go back to New Brunswick where she has no family.
Kevin French said his grandmother Inez Allen, 81, moved to Calgary from New Brunswick in mid-October after the family made the decision they could better care for their loved one, who has Alzheimers.
“She was a little reluctant to come out but when she got here, she was happier than ever and knew she’d made the right decision,” said French.
