TOPICS
• Information-sharing and strategizing to save local health care services.

• What now? Discussion on new federal government and our next steps.

• Ontario is paying off massive corporate tax cuts by cutting funding for public services and health care, and by privatizing public assets and services. Discuss what we can do to stop the redistribution of needed health care funding to the wealthy and corporations.

• Can we build a vision for progressive health care reform that will supersede the cuts and privatization agenda? Ideas include: democratic hospital governance, use of local suppliers, public home care, controls on executive salaries, improved primary care, better pharmaceutical management, better promotion and prevention.

 

Hotel Rooms

We have reserved a block of hotel rooms at the Bond Place Hotel, 65 Dundas St. E. (across from the Eaton Centre downtown). It is a unionized hotel. To get the reduced rate of $98 per night, call before November 1, 416-362-6061 or 1-800-268-9390 and cite “Ontario Health Coalition rate” or email reservations@bondplace.ca.

For local coalitions, if you do not have the ability to get funding locally to attend, we will subsidize up to two people from each local coalition to attend. If needed, we will pay for gas, train or flight, depending on which is most economical and we will cover the cost of accommodation in Toronto. Please contact Natalie Mehra to apply for subsidy. (The Ontario Health Coalition will only cover costs that have been expressly approved by Natalie prior to being incurred).
