Warning that Leaked Health Care Omnibus Bill Would Create Health Care Chaos: Longstanding Leaders of Organizations Representing Patients, Care Workers, Doctors
Toronto – Academic leaders, democracy advocates, patient advocates, front-line care workers and doctors are all
speaking with one voice when it comes to the leaked health care omnibus bill that has secretly been planned by the
Ford government for months: if passed, it would cause health care chaos that will last for years. Speaking at a Queen’s
Park press conference this morning, representatives called on the Ford government to rethink their plans; to rebuild
capacity in our public health care to meet population need and consult with Ontarians in a proper and meaningful
democratic consultation process about the future of our health care system, rather than engaging in massive
restructuring and privatization.
