Upcoming Town Hall Meetings: Attend one near you!

Posted: April 1, 2016

(April 1, 2016)

TOWN HALL MEETINGS: Lindsay, Hamilton, Windsor, Chatham, Wallaceburg, Sarnia, Pelham, North Bay, Port Colborne, Toronto, Orillia, Sault Ste. Marie, St. Joseph Island

Hospitals across the province are facing serious cuts to services.

London’s hospitals are planning $26 million in cuts this year and more cuts are expected to be announced. Lindsay’s Ross Memorial Hospital is facing devastating cuts to beds and staff. The Northumberland Hills Hospital is facing devastating cuts to departments such as emergency, medical/surgical, and laboratory services. Ontario’s hospitals are in gridlock, patients are languishing on stretchers in hallways, and surgeries are being cancelled for budgetary reasons.

 

WE CAN STOP THE CUTS!
In many communities, we have successfully stopped the hospital cuts by working together. Attend your local Town Hall Meeting to discuss the proposed cuts and help plan the fight-back campaign.

THANK YOU To everyone who came out last Saturday to the Northumberland and London Town Hall Meetings. The energy was palpable, as many stood in support of their local community hospitals and demanded an end to the cuts! We look forward to continuing our efforts in each community and building the fight-back campaign.
