On Health Care, Hudak Doesn't Get it.

QUEEN'S PARK, Aug. 10 /CNW/ - Hudak's health care hypocrisy is in full swing today. Committed to removing grassroots voices from community health care decision-making, Ontario Conservatives champion more Harris-style cuts.

FACTS:

  • Tim Hudak and the Ontario Conservative Party advocate an annual $2 billion cut to Ontario's health care system.
  • Tim Hudak served as Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health under the Harris government - and worked to close 28 hospitals, get rid of 7,110 beds, and fire 6,200 nurses.
  • The previous Conservative government ignored the needs of local communities, and made all decisions about health care from Queen's Park.
  • Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) were created by the McGuinty government to give communities a local voice in health care decisions which have a direct impact on local patients-ultimately resulting in better care.
  • Appointments to the LHIN boards are advertised online and open to applicants with health care and management expertise.
  • All LHIN appointments are subject to review by all-party committee. Of all appointees called to committee, the Conservatives have supported 3/4 of applicants.

Tim Hudak's agenda for health care is clear - cut more than $2-billion in annual funding for frontline health care. When it comes to health care in Ontario, Hudak just doesn't get it.
