Ford Fighting for Health Care

Premier Ford meets with Prime Minister Trudeau

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~~  August 30, 2022 (LSNews)  Premier Doug Ford met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at Queen’s Park today to discuss the current pressures on the heath care system, as well as housing, labour market shortages, immigration, and other shared priorities.

The premier and prime minister spoke about the current state of health care in Ontario and across the country, and the strains on health systems that have been heightened by the pandemic. They agreed on the importance of continuing to work closely as governments, as well as with our partners on the front line, to implement innovative solutions to problems that have been decades in the making.

The premier raised the need for the federal government to work together with provinces on ensuring the long-term sustainability and accessibility of high-quality health care services for all Canadians and asked for a First Minister’s meeting to be held as soon as possible.

The leaders discussed solutions to tackle the housing crisis, including Ontario’s progress on building 1.5 million homes over 10 years. Recent actions taken include giving municipalities the tools to speed up housing construction and leveraging surplus provincial lands. They agreed that all three levels of government must work together to do what they can to get more homes built faster.

The two leaders also discussed Ontario’s desire to welcome more economic and skilled immigrants to the province and the premier raised that removing barriers to immigration would significantly help Ontario respond to current labour and workforce shortages, including in the health care sector.

On TBNewsWatch  Thunder Bay-Superior North MPP Lise Vaugeois says people's lives would be put at risk if Ontario were to implement a proposal to merge health units and EMS services across the province.

But at times like these, all options need to be looked at to provide the best health care for the people of Northwestern Ontario
