Attn: Assignment Editor

TORONTO, May 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Health Coalitions from provinces that have privatized public hospitals’ surgeries and diagnostics to for-profit clinics share real life accounts of what has happened on the ground in their provinces as a result.

On Monday, May 8, the Ontario government passed their hospital privatization law, Bill 60. The Ontario Health Coalition has vowed to build the biggest fightback in its history to save our local public hospitals’ services.

Provincial health coalitions from provinces where for-profit clinics have been established to take over public hospital surgeries and diagnostics will be holding an urgent online press conference via Zoom, on Tuesday, May 16 at 12:00 pm Eastern

The Ontario Health Coalition is building a province-wide referendum campaign to stop what is the most undemocratic attack on our public health care in memory. On May 26th and 27th and throughout the month online we will be asking Ontarians to vote on the question: Do you want our public hospital services to be privatized to for-profit hospitals and clinics? Yes or No.
