Sam Oosterhoff re-introduces the Compassionate Care Act
News from the Constituency Office of Niagara West MPP Sam Oosterhoff
Posted July 22nd, 2018 on Niagara At Large
Queen’s Park – This third week of July, Sam Oosterhoff, MPP for Niagara West, once again tabled his first Private Member’s Bill, the Compassionate Care Act. Bill 3, as it is now know, would establish a hospice palliative care framework for the province of Ontario.
“Hospice palliative care is of great importance to the people of Niagara West and to those across Ontario,” declared Oosterhoff. “I am glad that I have the opportunity to introduce and debate this key piece of legislation during this summer session.”
Oosterhoff originally introduced the Compassionate Care Act in November 2017. While it passed Second Reading unanimously on December 14, 2017, the bill did not become law as the Parliament was dissolved before the bill made it to Third Reading.
“I hope that the all parties will come together once again to support palliative care,” concluded Oosterhoff. “The Compassionate Care Act is about giving the people of Ontario the health care that they want and deserve. That should be something that unites us all”.
