Ontarians have an opportunity #AskAndrea
A News Release from the Ontario New Democratic Party
Posted May 16th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
Toronto – Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath is teaming up with Twitter Canada to answer questions from across the province about the NDP’s #Change4Better campaign.
The live event, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, is an opportunity to engage with Horwath about her plans to make life better for everyday people in Ontario as she answers questions submitted from Twitter users.
“I’ve had a great time meeting with people across the province about our plan for Ontario,” Horwath said.
“More and more people tell me they’re sick of settling for Liberal and Conservative premiers, and they’re excited about doing something completely different. They’re excited about the kind of change we can make together in Ontario. I’ve loved meeting people all over the province during this campaign and talking about that, and I can’t wait for another opportunity to do that – this time on Twitter.”

I am voting NDP and have a sign. How do I answer the concerns people are expressing about Ontario becoming a sanctuary province?
Andrea: Re, LTCs I have visited a couple of LTCs in our area and have noticed an all to common odor of urine and fecal matter. I noticed window air conditioners in the windows. This reeks of a poor HVAC system and an unsanitary environment foe our beloved seniors. Our seniors deserve a lot better! May I suggest adding a complete air handling system that heats the air to 22C in winter with steam humidifiers maintaining a relative humidity of 50% and cools the air in summer to 15C and rewarms it to 22C to maintaining the same 50% relative humidity. To minimize both germ and viral levels for these seniors, 50% relative humidity is paramount. there is a Psychometric Chart to illustrate the HVAC process I have described and the Sterling Chart to illustrate just why 50% relative humidity is so critical. All of our hospitals use this system to keep their ORs in operation. Our seniors need the very best environment to live out their years.
To eliminate the objectional odors our senior’s facilities should consider fluorescent UV lamps in the air handler duct work they kill germs and destroy viruses leaving a slight ozone residual for a clean fresh sent.
We Ontarians need to do the very best for our seniors right now because it will be our fate to be shoved into an extremely poor environment and left to die without respect and compassion.
