COBOURG — A giant teddy bear has drawn attention to a health care concern.

The bear is touring the province with the slogan “We Can’t Bear to Lose Medicare”. The Ontario and Northumberland Health Coalitions gathered at Elgin Street and Strathy Road with the bear and signs for a short time on June 6 at 7 p.m. The group handed out leaflets to passersby.

Private for-profit clinics are popping up around Ontario and the coalition is concerned those clinics will take services, currently covered by OHIP, away from the public hospitals, said Peter Boyle, a volunteer with the Ontario Health Coalition who is travelling with the bear.
