News on the Niagara West By-Election from Ontario’s New Democratic Party
Posted November 7th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Grimsby, Niagara – This past November 4th, Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath joined NDP by-election candidate for the riding of Niagara West-Glanbrook to commit the party to fighting for the redevelopment of the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital.
“Conservatives and Liberals have both failed West Lincoln Memorial Hospital,” said Horwath at a media availability in front of the hospital. “Conservatives tried to shut down this hospital. Liberals cancelled the new hospital project in 2012.”
West Lincoln has been amalgamated into the Hamilton Health Science network of hospitals. HHS has identified problems with overcrowding and in its emergency department, a lack of access to appropriate diagnostics and also notes the hospital’s out of date infrastructure. WLMH was built in 1948.
“Our hospital is old and overcrowded and the Liberals and Conservatives are doing nothing to fix it,” said NDP Candidate Mike Thomas. “We will fight to protect and champion West Lincoln Memorial Hospital and to build the new hospital that this community needs!”
Either way – Conservative or Liberal – the residents of Niagara West-Glanbrook just can’t trust the other parties to do what’s right for Grimsby and the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. New Democrats are different. Andrea Horwath and Mike Thomas are driven to strengthen our public health care system, fight to rebuild the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital, and make sure everyone in Niagara West—Glanbrook gets the health care they need.
