ALEXIS CREEK, BC - A shortage of paramedics led to the closure of the ambulance station in Alexis Creek over the long weekend, and Cariboo South MLA Charlie Wyse said the situation remains unacceptable. "There are more activities taking place in the summertime, Nemiah rodeo for example. So there's increased activity, increased people from tourists, and a long weekend and we find that we have an ambulance station that is shut down because there are no crew members to staff it," Wyse said.

I am with Paraone on this one, once I am done my PCP next year, I know I will have to go somewhere small for awhile, like him, I will prepared to do it. Gone are the days of going to the local station, yaking with the U/C and getting hired.
There are medics all over the states (maybe even Canada), making a hell of a lot less then here in BC, and are still happy with the job.
I would do the job for minimum wage. There are actually some people out there, that are there for the job and not the money.
I have been in the cooking field for 12 years now, and I make $14.50/hr. I dont complain, I know there are cooks out there making a lot less in other places. With 12 years senority with BCAS I would be making mid $20/hr.
For those that dont think they are making enough money, you could always leave and go work in the patch up north, and make room for others that want to do the job to help people and not bitch about the wage
