Nov 9, 2019 - Save the Services that Save Us

When: Saturday November 9th, 11:30am
Where: Nathan Phillips Square

The Doug Ford government is planning to: Cut Public Health funding & close 25 out of 35 local Public Health Units, reducing them to 10.

Close 49 out of 59 local ambulance services, reducing them to 10 & close 12 of 22 local dispatch centres.

Make real-dollar cuts to public hospital funding, even though we have the fewest hospital beds left per person of any province in Canada and a crisis of hospital overcrowding. More cuts mean more services and staff cuts, less services, longer waits, more privatization & higher death rates.

Make real dollar cuts to long-term care homes, forcing municipalities to either raise taxes or cut services for elderly and chronic care residents.
