This coming Thursday, March 21, at 7 p.m., the Ontario Health Coalition, along with the Chatham-Kent Health Coalition, is holding a Town Hall Meeting at the Red-Line Room of the St. Clair College arena.

The purpose of this public meeting is to explain the new health-care plan that our premier and his government is proposing. It drastically changes the way health care will be delivered in Ontario.

The 14 LHINs, as well as six provincial agencies, are in the process of being dismantled. They are to be replaced by 50 satellite health groups and one Toronto super agency, whose directors have been already appointed by the government.

The Toronto super agency will dictate what services we receive at the local level. Regulations and restrictions surrounding privatization and service delivery will be eliminated or severely loosened. Providers like CEOs of large hospitals will be able to submit proposals to supervise all hospital care in a region.

We will not have any control over our health care, and privatization will increase 20-fold.

Please join us at the Red-Line Room on Thursday at 7 p.m. to find out how you can help fight this ill-thought out plan! Natalie Mehra, executive director of the Ontario Health Coalition, will be speaking, and we will be serving refreshments.

Help us fight to keep public healthcare!
