TORONTO, March 25 /CNW/ -
WHEN: Tuesday, March 25
WHERE: Evergreen Seniors Centre
683 Woolwich Street
TIME: 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
WHAT: The provincial government imposed a second moratorium on
competitive bidding in homecare following a protest of 1,500
people in Hamilton in January. There, the community raised an
uproar when the VON and St. Joseph's were eliminated from
bidding for services they had provided for 100 and 80 years
respectively in a secretive and incomprehensible process.
Officials in the Minister of Health's office have been telling
groups that they will make a decision about next steps
regarding the moratorium in the next few weeks.
