Emergency Local Town Hall Meetings to Force the Ford Government to Address our Unprecedented Public Hospital Crisis & Stop his Privatization Plan

Attn: Assignment Editor

MEDIA ADVISORY

TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

What:
The Ontario Health Coalition is holding a series of emergency town halls across Ontario by Zoom to force the Ford government to address the hospital crisis and take urgent action to support our local public hospitals instead of funneling millions into for-profit corporations to privatize our public hospital services.

All across Ontario people have banded together for a century or more to build up our local public hospitals. We have volunteered, fundraised and donated from our pay cheques because these are vital services for our communities. The Ford government’s plan to privatize hospital services would dismantle our local public hospitals, taking the profitable services out to for-profit corporations and robbing them of desperately needed staff and funding. If the Ford government continues to ignore & downplay the staffing crisis — and use the crisis as an excuse to privatize — our community hospitals are at grave risk. We need real action, and hospitals alone cannot do it. We need to force the Ford government to finally help resolve the staffing and capacity crisis in our local public hospitals, and stop his privatization plan.

We are expecting large crowds at each town hall. Media are welcome.
