You can add RVH in Barrie to list of hospitals forced to lay off staff to try to balance hospital budgets across Ontario. Both full-time and part-time employees will be getting pink slips. As Wynne and company organize $6,000 a plate fund raisers and promote beer and wine sales in grocery stores and sorta kinda think about selling 250 LCBO outlets, medical care doesn’t appear high on Liberals’ agenda at Queen’s Park.
So far well over 1,200 nurses, although by now that number could be 2,000, have been laid and that number increases weekly in the province. It is expected by the time the next provincial election is held in 2018 is called, there is a good chance a number of hospitals will have shuttered its door.
Who will one blame…..not ghost busters but Wynne’s Grits! All of this chaos should easily pave the way for Patrick Brown’s Tories to govern Yours to Discover.
