If you have family of 15 or more from third world country requiring urgent heathcare need all at the same time , for sure you have a real crisis !
Heart attack waiting to happen
Build more Condominiums than hospitals. Spend more money every summer to build bicycle route. Best of luck.
opiate deaths in ontario last 10 years, anyone? Don't worry nothing government cannabis can't cure!! o
Oh, i also come to the enlightenment that vast quantities of pharmaceuticals under repeated yearly surveillance reports have gone missing from Hospital Dispensaries!, now may i ask, if this the case; where did them drugs end up ? Streets? community? who know's right?!! Perhaps this as well somehow magically silenced as well?
Premiums UP!!!! UP!!! UP!!!! BUST!!!!!!
Why isn't this racketeering dirtbag behind bars ?
Translation: What do you guys want from me? 90% of the patients that need care are getting it.
This would be impressive if Canada was a 3rd world country
He so full of crap. HE DOES NOT CARE FOR ANYTHING BUT BIG BUSINESS. I DON'T BELIEVE DOUG FORD FOR ANYTHING. HE HAS DONE NOTHING FOR THE DISABLED THAT CANNOT WORK IN ONTARIO. THEY LIVE ON LESS THEN 1000.00 DOLLARS A MONTH THEY HAVE TO BEG FOR FOOD AT FOOD BANKS. THESE ARE THE POOREST OF CANADIAN. WHILE HE EAT WELL ON STEAK AND LOBSTER
Try lowering income taxes to attract and retain talent across the board. Maybe nurses and doctors won't keep moving to Florida where they pay a fraction of tax.
I think, we need more recruiters desperately!
Hire back unvaccinated workers come on Doug.
Hire back unvaccinated
all the Nurses go south to the states where the money is
What's so hard to understand here? We pay some of the highest taxes in the world. This is in part due to "free" health care. Instead of allocating the money collected through taxation into health care. They have been lining their pockets with it. Don't overcomplicate things. We pay more than enough for quality health care. We're not getting it because we are being ripped off. Plain and simple.
Conservatives not caring about health-care. Shocking ! Next stop, education.
Have unvaccinated healthcare workers been allowed to return to work?
If not, that might help! LOL
Why would they re-elect this person after his shady performance in his last term? He’s going to drive Ontario right into the ground. What does Ford have to do to prove he’s not worthy of his position? Well he already proved he’s not capable yet was re-elected. The community is getting what they deserve for picking such terrible leadership.
Cool. Now do a story about the discovery documents that show Trudeau had no medical basis for his COVID policies and rvery move he made was purely political.
The ONLY pandemic we’ve faced in our lifetimes is every politician that cut hospital beds while claiming it’s a cost effective move. Now we have a nurse shortage as the unlawful mandates cost so many their jobs.
If you voted for Doogie DumDum, thanks for nothing.
The “Cons” caring about healthcare is itself an oxymoron.
Call back all those you fired ..if they still are in nursing..TRUDEAUS crime
Money don't grows on trees. The health care situation is the same in whole Canada., in QC is worst than ON This is the fault of federal government, who believed that pandemy will last forever and threw billions of dollars on vax passes that last few month, lock downs and other measures that badly hurt the economy, instead of investing in heath care. The best think is that internationally trained doctors and nurses to be integrate rapidly in the Canadian system. I grew up in Europe where is 2 tiers health care system , and dr and nurses don't have the same salaries as here, but the system is way much better. The Canadian Health care system was overwhelmed and underfunded way before pandemic, Time for major reforms.
Maybe ford could use some of that billion dollars he got to roll out the covid app that already existed
Scrap all mandates and force all fired workers back, if they refused to go back send them to prison for life. Everything should be forcibly returned to pre covid times.
F*^k Doug Ford, but that being said, I will never trust the Liberal or NDP parties again, not in this life anyway.
