CoC: The Crisis in Public Health Care / Long Term Care
7:45 PM - 9:00 PM This is a virtual event
The following is from the Council of Canadians.
In the public portion of Council of Canadians London Chapter’s 2022 AGM, Natalie Mehra, Executive Director of the Ontario Health Coalition will give the keynote address entitled “The Crisis in Public Health Care / Long Term Care and Ford’s Unprecedented Plans to Privatize”.
Natalie Mehra has been the Executive Director of the Ontario Health Coalition for over 21 years. She has built the Health Coalition into the largest and broadest public interest group on health care in the province, representing more than half-a-million Ontarians in its network of more than 400 member organizations and more than 50 local chapters.
On October 26, the OHC released a briefing note that charged that the Ford government lied to the public about its privatization of Ontario’s public hospital services. The Coalition reported that the Ford government significantly increased funding to private clinics while at the same time denying that they were expanding the private clinics. The denials were made in written and verbal statements to media across Ontario in the months leading into the election. Then, as soon as the election was over, the Ford government announced it is indeed going to privatize our public hospitals’ services.
This event will take place at 7:45 pm November 23 on zoom.
