Petition to Tie Hospital Funding to Inflation
To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
Whereas for all Ontarians — no matter who they are, or where they live — the health of their family comes first, and it should come first for the Government of Ontario, but unfortunately Liberal political self-interest comes first;
Whereas 1,200 nurses have been fired since January 2015;
Whereas hospital beds are being closed across Ontario; and
Whereas hospitals budget have been frozen for four years, and increases this year will not keep up with inflation or a growing population.
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly as follows:
Stop the Liberal cuts to hospitals, and ensure that, at a minimum, hospital funding keeps up with the growing costs of inflation and population growth, each and every year.
