Last week Doug Ford’s Health Minister announced that he is bringing in private hospitals.
They are midstream in privatizing 18,000 LTC beds for the next 30-yrs.
They passed legislation to privatize the last remaining public parts of home care.
They are privatizing vaccines and COVID-testing, and more.
They are planning billions of dollars in permanent cuts to public services post-election…
…if we don’t stop them.
It Stops Now. EMERGENCY SUMMIT II

ACTION TAKEN BY DOCTORS AND MEMBERS OF THE ONTARIO HEALTH COALITION
This weekend, we stood together in solidarity with health care workers to support public health, science, democracy, equity and our public hospital staff and patients as the anti-public health convoy came to Toronto.
We counted more than 1,000 people there! Watch the full video here: https://youtu.be/P63P3qBXKtY
Thank you very much to everyone for standing with us.
