It’s The Same Old Ford in 2023
A Call-Out from the Green Party of Ontario
Posted January 5th, 2023 on Niagara At Large
Late last week (over the Holiday Season), while most of us were spending time with our loved ones and celebrating the end of a troubling year, the Ford government was plowing ahead with its business-as-usual disrespect for Ontario’s healthcare workers.
Ford waited until the eleventh hour, when he thought nobody was looking, to appeal the Superior Court decision that ruled Bill 124 unconstitutional – making it crystal clear that he doesn’t care about healthcare workers or the millions of Ontarians who raised their voices in opposition to thisharmful legislation.
Bill 124 suppresses wages and limits collective bargaining rights. Not surprisingly, it has fueled staffing shortages in hospitals and across the crumbling healthcare system as nurses leave the profession or take their skills to jurisdictions where they feel valued and respected.
Tell Ford to drop the appeal.
Now, instead of accepting that Bill 124 is dead and paying healthcare workers the fair wages they deserve, the PCs are doubling down and wasting taxpayer money on an expensive and unnecessary appeal while our healthcare system continues to cave in.
We need to take better care of the people who care for us. Ford must end this petty campaign against our nurses and healthcare workers. Please join me in calling on the government to abandon this appeal immediately.
