Stephen has written to the Minister of Health about the dire situation facing hospitals in Ottawa and across the province.
The Ontario government must take immediate steps to prevent further closures and alleviate the current strain on our healthcare system by:
- Prioritizing recruitment and retention of healthcare workers by repealing Bill 124 and increasing mental health supports
- Expedite the credentialing process of foreign-trained healthcare workers to help address staffing shortages
- Provide 10 paid sick days for all Ontarians
- Increasing resources to primary care, community agencies and long-term care facilities
Ontarians are counting on you to step up and take action to prevent any further collapse in our healthcare system. Please get this done.
