Funding alone won’t fix hospital overcrowding: NDP

Views: 316

The NDP is convinced that the Liberal announcement of funding for the William Osler Health System is simply not enough to solve the problem of overcrowding but welcomed it anyway.

On Thursday, March 22, Premier Kathleen Wynne announced an additional $822 million investment in Ontario hospitals in 2018 to 2019, an increase of 4.6 per cent. The increase is on top of the 3.2 per cent provided last year.

Horwath said the Wynne Liberals are scrambling to change the headlines before the coming election. Ontario voters will go to the polls June 7, 2018.

But what Horwath doesn’t say is what NDP would do to alleviate the issue of overcrowding. Perhaps building a new hospital and expanding current ones would help? – CINEWS
