Some interior cities miss out on doctor funds
The B.C. Medical Association and the B.C. Government have a solution to solve the doctor shortage in many rural communities.
20 physicians and specialists will get a one-time incentive of $100,000 to work in one of 17 designated rural communities, but they have to commit to work there for three years.
The list includes 4 southern interior communities: Clearwater, Cranbrook, Nakusp and Princeton.
However the city of Enderby is not on that list says mayor Howie Cyr.
He spoke to Daybreak's Christina Low about the community reaction to that.
Chris Walker also spoke to Alan Davidson, an Associate Professor of Health and Exercise Science at UBC-Okanagan who specializes in health care policy about this issue.
