One response to “Ford Government Forging Ahead with Privatizing Ontario’s Health Services

  1. IMHO this is even bigger than just our Health Care being privatized, which began in the early 1990s after the adoption of the Free Trade Agreement, then NAFTA, and now USMCA. Our Health Care is being ‘harmonized’ with the U.S. system, indeed ‘Americanized’, and once that’s done there will be nothing left of Canada, nor preventing Canada’s annexation by the U.S., the same way Russia annexed Crimea a few years ago, and intends to annex Ukraine next.
