Sault Ste. Marie Part of Provincial Rally For Health Care


Sault Ste. Marie will be one of several communities in the province that will stage a health care rally this Thursday. 

Raising the alarm about the urgent threat to public health care, the Ontario Health Coalition is mobilizing thousands of Ontarians to fightback against the Ford government’s plan to privatize Ontario’s health care. The list of health care services that the Ford government is trying to privatize is growing, warned the Coalition.

The Sault Ste. Marie rally is expected to start at noon at the Roberta Bondar Pavilion

The Ontario Health Coalition reports that Over the last year, more than a billion dollars in public funding has gone to private for-profit clinics and for-profit staffing agencies to privatize what have been, to date, public non-profit services, the Coalition reports. At the same time, local public hospitals are losing their emergency departments, vital care services and staff, and a number are under urgent threat of closure.
