  1. I see so many Disagreement votes on this, why is it that people don’t like the idea of bringing this health Care Facility to Cayman, or is that people just like to disagree with everything? I am sure that if the people that are against it come down with Heart problems they will be the first in line at the door..Won’t it also give young people chances to get into the medical field locally if they apply themselves and get a medically based education.

    I just don’t understand what anyone could find bad about this.. Speak now or forever hold your peace.
