From the Ontario Federation of Labour:
Make a major show of strength to set the tone for the reopening of the Ontario Legislature.
We are not going away.
We are unalterably opposed to the privatization of our public hospitals.
We paid for them. We built them. They do not belong to the Ford government to run them into crisis, gut their core services and privatize them.
We demand that the Ford government:
- Stop the privatization of our public hospitals
- Stop creating a crisis in our public hospitals by under funding them, cutting and closing services, and trying to roll back wages of nurses, health professionals & support staff,
- Expand the use of existing ORs in our public hospitals, and
- Expand capacity in our public hospitals & restore closed services.
