"Finance Minister Charles Sousa tells us his recent budget represents a magic wand that will lift the dark clouds over the health care services of our province," said Sara Labelle, OPSEU Second Vice-President and chair of the union's Hospital Professionals Division. "It isn't. If anything, this budget only reinforces the fact that when it comes to healthcare spending on a per capita basis, Ontario ranks dead last among Canadian jurisdictions."

OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas will host the news conference.
