‘Favouring his mates’: Vicar reprimands PM over Calvary takeover
Anthony Albanese has been criticised for his failure to intervene in the compulsory takeover of the Calvary Catholic public hospital.
The hospital received scrutiny for having ‘religious undertones’, with a report calling for a more inclusive approach to its services.
Father Tony Percy, a retired vicar general of the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn, strongly criticised the decision, highlighting the lack of proper procedure being followed. He also questioned Prime Minister Albanese’s support for the acquisition.
“He’s saying, ‘Oh I’ll favor my mates in Canberra… over ordinary Australians”.
