NDP Leader Andrea Horwath will be in St. Catharines Wednesday, a day after Premier Doug Ford visited the region.

Horwath will hold a roundtable and media conference with local frontline health care workers in St. Catharines to discuss low-staffing levels and changes in long-term care homes, including more staff and better pay.

She will be joined by NDP MPPs Jennie Stevens, and Wayne Gates.

Horwath will also meet with local leaders to hear their concerns,  tour Shaw Festival Theatre and acknowledge the work they’ve done switching from costume-making to sewing personal protective equipment like gowns and masks during the pandemic.
