Petition Launched to Support Mega Hospital Location

A petition has now been launched in favour of the proposed location of the new acute care hospital in Windsor.

The petition wants the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal to reject calls to change the proposed location at County Rd. 42 and the 9th Concession, near the airport.

Petition Organizer Brian Finn writes, "This is a regional hospital and should be readily available to all county and city residents."

Finn fears if there is a change in the new hospital location, it will cause a long delay for a new site and the province could cancel funding.

Citizens for Accountable MegaHospital Planning Process (CAMPP) wants a zoning approval by the City of Windsor to be overturned and the new hospital closer to the city core.

The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) has ruled the challenge by CAMPP will proceed to a full oral hearing.
