Health Coalition concerned over McGuinty cuts to health care
Cornwall - May. 28, 2012 - On Thursday over forty people, including MPP Jim McDonell, attended a town hall style meeting. It was hosted by City Councillor Elaine MacDonald, who is also the Chair of the Cornwall Health Coalition. The meeting was to discuss concerns about McGuinty government cuts to health care. Keynote speakers at this event were Dennis Howlett (Canadians for Tax Fairness); Ross Sutherland (M.A., RN), Anne Clark (ONA); and Natalie Mehra (director of the Ontario Health Coalition). “We don’t want to see any more hardship as a result of patients unable to access the care they need,” said Mehra. The message from the panel was clear, that public health care needs to be protected, and ordinary citizens can speak up and help change the governments mind. Elaine MacDonald is hopeful that M.P.P Jim McDonell will bring their message to Queen's Park.
