TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
WHEREAS the Ford PC government has passed omnibus legislation to drastically overhaul our health care system with no commitment to publically delivered health services;
WHEREAS the previous Conservative government under Mike Harris privatized Ontario’s home care system which contributed considerably to our present day hallway medicine crisis and;
WHEREAS every night hundreds of Ontario’s patients wait for care in hospital hallways, showers and TV rooms;
WHEREAS Ontario sits near the bottom of developed countries for hospital beds per patient and has the fewest Registered Nurses per patient in Canada;
THEREFORE WE, the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to ensure the Ontario government protect and invest in a robust, publicly funded and publicly delivered health system and reject any further private delivery of health services.
