WE, THE UNDERSIGNED OBJECT TO BILL 175 PROPOSED QUIETLY BY DOUG FORD, PREMIER OF THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO.  BILL 175 WILL ENACT THE CONTINUED PRIVATIZATION OF LONG TERM CARE HOMES ... WHICH IS PART AND PARCEL OF OUR CURRENT ISSUES OF NEGLECT AND NON ACCOUNTABILITY.   SEE MORE BELOW:

"Premier Doug Ford and his PC government are moving ahead with their new home care legislation. According to the Ontario Health Coalition, the legislation will further enable privatization of home care and remove the existing provisions of public control and accountability. 

The legislation was being pushed through the Ontario legislature before the government’s attention was diverted by the pandemic.

Now that Ford is determined to “re-open the economy”, the government is moving ahead with its home care agenda. It has allocated three days of public hearings for Bill 175, Home and Community Care Act, from June 15 to 17. 

“This legislation has been created in the backrooms without any public consultation,” said Natalie Mehra, executive director of the Ontario Health Coalition. “It is being railroaded through at break-neck speed before the vast majority of the more than 750,000 people impacted even know that it is happening.”  Excerpt from Rank and File, 06/01/2020
