SAVE THE SERVICES THAT SAVE US

11/05/2019

THE DOUG FORD GOVERNMENT IS PLANNING TO:

CUT PUBLIC HEALTH FUNDING & CLOSE 25 OUT OF 35 PUBLIC HEALTH UNITS, REDUCING THEM TO 10

CLOSE 49 OUT OF 59 LOCAL AMBULANCE SERVICES, REDUCING THEM TO 10 & CLOSE 12 OUT OF 22 LOCAL DISPATCH CENTERS

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 & STAFF CUTS, LESS SERVICES, LONGER WAIT TIMES, 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 & CRONIC CARE RESIDENTS.

LETS STAND TOGETHER AND INSIST THE FORD GOVERNMENT EXPAND NOT CUT OUR LOCAL HEALTH SERVICES.

NO PRIVATIZATION.
