The NDP are taking aim at the Tories. With just days left in the provincial election, Kenora-Rainy River nominee Glen Archer's concerned about health care cuts.
He was joined by health critic France Gelinas, as they talked about cuts that could be made at Kenora's hospital, if Doug Ford became premier. Archer says the hospital would lose 20 staff and 3 beds, as part of the Tories $6 billion in budget cuts.
“You can’t slash $6 billion from government spending without closing hospitals or firing nurses and frontline staff, but Doug Ford is determined to make these massive cuts – cuts that will devastate northwestern Ontario and hurt all of our families,” Archer said in a prepared statement.
“Our waits for health care are too long, as it is. We cannot let Doug Ford and his Conservatives hurt so many families in Kenora-Rainy River and across Northern Ontario,” said Gélinas. “We need to come together to stop these dangerous cuts, and we need to come together to vote for change that makes life better.”
Election day is set for June 7.
