It’s voting day across Ontario on the future of health care.

An unofficial provincewide referendum is underway. Activists are asking people to vote in the Stop Hospital Cuts Now Referendum. The Ontario Health Coalition, supported locally by Making Waves Windsor Essex, are at workplaces and high-profile locations such as malls and fast-food outlets. About 400 ballot boxes are in Windsor-Essex.

The move to stop cuts to community hospitals comes as dozens of nurses were let go at Windsor Regional Hospital. The layoffs were blamed on a lack of funding. The ballots will go to Queen’s Park in hopes of sending a message to the Liberal government to restore hospital funding.

Co-Chair of the Windsor-Essex Health Coalition, Ken Lewenza Jr., is hoping that at least 30,000 people vote.
