Yesterday, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau announced that a re-elected Liberal government will move forward to eliminate the health care waitlists, hire 7,500 family doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners, and expand virtual care.

Justin Trudeau, Terry Sheehan, and the entire Liberal team have supported everyone across the country including the Sault and area during COVID-19. Eighty percent of every dollar spent in response to COVID-19 came from the Liberal government. Now, as we work to build a healthier and safer Canada, the Liberal team will create a better healthcare system for everyone.

“Together, we’ve done whatever it takes to keep Canadians safe and healthy by supporting our health care system during the COVID-19 crisis,” said Justin Trudeau, Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. “But we can’t stop there. Canadians need better access to our health care system and a family doctor. We need bold action, and we have a real plan to make it happen.”

“Simply put we need more doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners in the Sault and area, and the Liberal Party is ready to invest even more to get more people in our community access to the primary care they need”, says Terry Sheehan Liberal candidate for Sault Ste. Marie.  Sheehan goes on to state, “these investments will help us hire a minimum 7,500 family doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners across Canada, improve access in rural communities and communities across Northern Ontario.  A re-elected Liberal government will do this by increasing student loan forgiveness and helping them set up a practice in rural and remote regions.”

To create a healthier Canada for all Canadians, a re-elected Liberal government will work with the provinces and territories to rebuild the health care system by:

●      Supporting the elimination of health system waitlists that have worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic; and

●      Expanding virtual health care services to make it easier for Canadians to access our healthcare system.

Sheehan declares, “I will always stand up to protect our universal public healthcare system and fight to improve it, especially for Sault Ste. Marie and area and communities across Northern Ontario.”

  1. Correction : 100% of every dollar spent in response to the Covid-19 came from the Canadian taxpayer. Mr. Trudeau continues to think that the Canadian Taxpayers money belongs to him to do he pleases with.

  2. Terry, if you’ve noticed, we have a greater opioid crisis than Covid-19 crisis here in Sault Ste. Marie. We also have a homeless crisis and affordable housing crisis. Why not work on these items here in the Sault as well as your apparent Health Care help. You have been promising help on that issue as long as you’ve been in power. Also, Trudeau is putting out more lies about helping new 1st time home buyers, help in buying a home. Help the people that have lost their homes and can’t afford to rent a home or apartment.

  3. I always find it interesting that the party in power at the time(this time Liberals) will promise what they could have worked on in the prior years to the election. I think the public is smarter now and recognizes insincerity. All of a sudden the Liberals want to provide us with better health care. What about doing something about it BEFORE this election.
