It is unclear why Queen’s Park is at war with Ontario doctors who rejected a new contract with provincial physicians. The Wynne government in general and health minister Dr. Hoskins in particular have picked a fight they will not win.
With well over one million Ontarians still without a family doctor, hospital departments being shuttered, valuable nurses and other staff being laid off and some doctors seeking employment out of province, the Liberal Government here in Yours to Discover is playing a deadly game of Russian roulette with our fragile health care.
Recently when the Premier travelled to Northern Ontario she got an ear full when it came to mounting hydro prices and health care. Still, not even shaming her seems to get through……letters, e-mails and editorials blasting Grits at Queen’s Park for making war on our medical profession fall on deaf ears. In less than two years from now, the Wynne government will be shown the door. Her kind of confrontational politics reminds us of Trump’s south of the border and her in Ontario that’s passé.
