And now...Dalton McGuinty's Do-Over:
In 2003, Dalton McGuinty promised to "invest in homecare so that
Ontarians can receive better care at home."
But in a 2006 interview with Healthcare Quarterly, George Smitherman
said, "One area where we haven't done our best work, where we are nowhere
near maximizing our potential...is our obligation to support people to
age in place. We...have yet to fully consider the necessary resources and
policies that support people who live out their days in the home that
they have known. ...I really feel that our commitment to community care
over the last three years has not yet seen our best public policy
Now it's 2007 and Dalton McGuinty is promising to "support Ontario
seniors who want to stay in their own homes."
If you couldn't believe Dalton McGuinty in 2003 why would you believe him
