Midland Town hall meeting to talk health care in Ford's Ontario

A Town Hall meeting is being held in Midland on April 4th to talk about the Doug Ford government's plan for health care in Ontario.

The Ford government is proposing to resctructure hospitals, long term care, home care, community care and mental health services in the province.

Hosts of the meeting - the Concerned Citizens of North Simcoe - say the new legislation clears the way for mega-mergers and privatization. They add that it has been created with little to no public consultation, and will ultimately remove decision making ability from local providers and put it into the hands of a super agency in Toronto.

The meeting will include presentations as well as question and answer sessions from a variety of authorities including Ms. Natalie Mehra of the Ontario Health Coalition.

There will also be an opportunity to sign up to take a chartered bus on Tuesday, April 30 for a deomonstration at Queen's Park

The Town Hall meeting will get underway Thursday, April 4th, at 7pm at the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre.
