10 minute response time not guaranteed but death by heart attack is
The death from heart attack on Victoria Row last weekend earned Island EMS, the private contractor for ambulance services, a black eye.
Charlottetown Councilor Mitch Tweel says the service was too slow to respond to the man who suffered a heart attack and died. Bystanders did attempt CPR until the ambulance arrived but to no avail.

No siree Bob, none of them natives gonna settle in our city. We got toxic land, high taxes. The last immigrants, and the only immigrants Charlottetown needs, were the Lebanese, even if some of the grandchildren have an IQ below 80. Don’t sweat it: every city has one or two neanderthals in city hall.
I have a question. Is “The Staff” at the Guardian a pen-name for “this is a truly bad story no one wants to admit they wrote” ? They used the same writer for the lie about how unemployment improved last month.
