Release McGuinty Warned to Stop Health Care Privatization: OHC Responds to Drummond Commission
Posted: December 7, 2011
(December 7, 2011) The Ontario Health Coalition warns that the McGuinty government’s Drummond Commission must consider the vast body of evidence against health care privatization when drafting its report on public service reform in a press conference today at the Ontario Legislative building. Don Drummond, a bank executive, has used the enhanced platform given to him through his appointment as the head of the Commission on Public Sector Reform to become a spokesperson recommending health care privatization across Canada. Last summer, the coalition wrote an open letter to the Minister of Finance listing their concerns about Drummond’s connections with the banking industry that is involved in privatized P3 hospitals in Ontario.
