Ontario had no plan to address pandemic or protect residents in long-term care, final commission report says
Ontario was not prepared to address a pandemic and had no plan to protect residents in long-term care, according to a final report from an independent commission released Friday evening.
Doug ford's government is responsible for most of the dead / sick in the province, this is confirmed, it is undeniable fact. Anything else is spin, there is nothing a government can do that is worse than spinning the deaths of its own people, there used to be a line.
Of course it didn’t. Ford was busy deregulating LTC before it hit to maximize profits for his PC LTC owning friends. “Profits over people” should be their slogan.
I'm going to pretend to clutch my pearls...
Anyone who worked in LTC or healthcare, could have told you this years ago.
Each successive government has ignored the revolving door in the sector created by burnout, stagnant wages, and for-profits cutting hours.
"Williams and the government repeatedly ignored the warnings of scientists, doctors, local public health officials" describes the @fordnation government in every single thing they do!!!
You want to know what was breaking news; elderly lady was killed at the corner of Main and Danforth crossing the road in her wheelchair she was hit by a cement truck, but nobody bothered to get her name just her age😠 her name is news maybe you CBC could get it.
Ford and Fullerton are in breach of public trust and should be facing criminal charges.
It’s time for Ontarians to open up on their own. Restaurants, small businesses, etc! Enough of this BS!!
But they sure had plans for the feds $6billion that was for us residents but we’ve seen nothing.
literally CHOSE to MURDER seniors in LTC and Ford was more worried abt creating an IRON RING around FOR PROFIT LTC OWNERS like Mike Harris.
FORD MURDERED 4000 SENIORSM
THIS @OntarioPCParty REPRESENTS CORPORATE interests NOT THE PEOPLE OF ONTARIO.
No one in this whole big wide world was prepared to address this pandemic. It literally came out of no where. The world thought of it as a science fiction story. I defy anyone to say they saw this coming. LTC was in crisis long before Ford, we all knew it and did nothing.
Newflash: Ontario not ready for man made desease released from Chinese lab.
Not exactly breaking. We watched every horrifying minute in real time
#BREAKING : Ontario is still not prepared after 15 months and has no plan still to protect LTC.
well yes, don't need a independent commission to know that.
Released late on a Friday, more bad news for our gopher of a Premier - who will now dive underground for cover. I'll give him on a pass for the first wave - the system was rot before he got in - but his corroded 'iron ring' turned LTCs into slaughterhouses in the second wave.
Conservative ideology is incapable of handling a pandemic. Cutting taxes and services can not get us out of a pandemic, no matter how hard they try
They are unfit to lead through a pandemic, and therefore are unfit to lead at all
At the very least can we agree to no more Fords?
I have worked in LTC for the past 10 years, I had to turn off the cbc radio broadcast of his b/s 90 seconds in ...didn't want to vomit in my car on the DVP on my way to work and cause an accident...cause the hospitals are full
Neither was QC.
And all levels of gov, who are all clearly part of the great reset, are complicit.
Our healthcare is all about acute care, with blind spots for LTC, community based nursing and rehab because the power brokers are Doctors. It’s the nurses that bring people back to good health.
Ahh the propaganda machine in full effect. I was just looking for all your articles showing our massive deficit with no plan for recovery , the failure to react on covid by the federal government , letting flights in and this massive atrocious vaccine failure. Close ur doors CBC
