TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
WHEREAS the Ford government is currently proposing massive restructuring to the entire health system without any public consultation;
WHEREAS the proposal eliminates local planning and control of health care;
WHEREAS the proposal will open the door for unprecedented levels of for-profit providers in our health care system;
WHEREAS the last Conservative government privatized home care services creating a system that fails too many families;
WHEREAS the current hallways medicine crisis is a direct result of inadequate home care, long term care and community care services;
WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to request the government to abandon Bill 74, the People Health Care Act, and focus on improving our province’s not for profit delivery of universal health care system.
