LETTER: Watch our medical care program

Thirteen per cent of these clinics have failed a mandatory health inspection and 22 per cent have received a conditional pass.

The Ontario government is dismantling public community hospitals in favour of privately run clinics.

Thirteen per cent of these clinics have failed a mandatory health inspection and 22 per cent have received a conditional pass.

One private clinic for pain has infected three of its patients with hepatitis C.

Outpatient physiotherapy labs have been closed. All of this has placed a financial burden upon Ontarians who have to pay fees above what provincial medicare will pay.

You have to wonder if it’s possible that the Ontario government is in collusion with the federal government to allow US big box healthcare providers to help destroy our medical care program.

Being of the same philosophy, watch for the BC government to begin doing the same thing.
