The Ford government has passed Bill-60 which is an unlawful attack on Ontario's public healthcare.
Bill-60 allows the government to open private, for-profit hospitals, clinics and facilities which will make wealth, rather than medical need, the determining factor for treatment.
This violates the Canada Health Act which states that healthcare in Canada exists to "protect, promote and restore the physical and mental well-being of residents of Canada and to facilitate reasonable access to health services without financial or other barriers."
Healthcare privatization in Ontario is a threat to accessibility, equity, quality of care, and public accountability. In order to prioritize patient well-being over profits, we must fight for a publicly funded and universally accessible healthcare system. Together, we can safeguard a healthcare system that serves ALL Ontarians equitably and effectively.
