I am very concerned that the Ontario provincial government is considering unprecedented changes to our health care system that I do not support.
These changes, it appears, will not only permit, but possibly encourage, more private delivery of health services and give sweeping powers to restructure our community hospitals, long-term care homes and home and community care my family and I rely on. More services will move out of smaller communities. Patients will suffer as gaps in care multiply.
I very much value our public health system and I’m asking you to join me in protecting it. This is why I’m calling on you to oppose this restructuring, which has been planned behind closed doors and with no consultation with Ontarians like me.
