Demonstrations to push the provincial Liberal government for increased funding for hospitals and long-term care are planned for April 25 in Kenora, June 15 in Sudbury and on October 27 in Ottawa. Check out the YouTube video from the February 6th rally in Hamilton.
Following a demonstration in Kingston on October 27, the provincial government announced an additional 1% in funding for Ontario’s hospitals. While this brings funding for hospitals in this year to 3%, their real operating costs are close to 5%.These demonstrations are pushing for funding for hospitals and long-term care that would cover their real costs on an ongoing basis.
