Ontario NDP Candidate Michele McCleave – Kennedy believes that there isn’t enough for families to receive proper health care in the Soo, and believes she can fix it.
McCleave-Kennedy believes that health care in Ontario has been suffering ever since the Conservatives fired 6,000 nurses and disposed of 7,000 hospital beds, stating that Conservatives have damaged Ontario’s hospitals and considers it a crisis.
Andrea Horvath has promised, if elected, to invest $1.2 billion in Ontario hospitals to immediately put an end to hallway medicine, as well as $19 billion toward repairing, upgrading and other facility needs to health care facilities across Ontario.
A promise of shortened wait times for procedures by ending arbitrary caps on surgeries, as well as end years long waits for long term care for our seniors by guaranteeing 600 beds to be made available here in Sault Ste. Marie by 2021.
“Sault families shouldn’t have to settle for a Wynne Liberal government that cut services or a Ford Conservative government that will cut even more. It’s time to restore hope and bring a change for the better to northern health care,” said McCleave-Kennedy.
