UPDATE: Time To Care Rally Video
Posted: February 28, 2018
Almost a thousand people came out to push Bill 33 over the top and win a regulated minimum care standard of an average of 4-hours hands-on care per day for long-term care (nursing home) residents. The crowd was joined by France Gélinas, NDP Health Critic and sponsor of the Bill which has already passed 1st and 2nd Reading in Ontario’s Legislature. The government is trying to let the Bill die by not moving it forward before the Legislature closes for the election. The OHC joined CUPE Ontario and the Ontario Federation of Labour, families, residents, caseworkers, and health professionals who came out in the hundreds to advocate for improved care levels as a top priority issue.
