TORONTO, Feb. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - We are encouraged to see that today's
throne speech renewed the government's commitment to health care
initiatives long advocated by Ontario's doctors.
Ontario's doctors are pleased that the government has pledged to
increase access to mental health services and support efforts to reduce
the stigma of mental illness. The government's commitment to focus on
health promotion initiatives such as combating smoking and obesity is
also a step in the right direction.
Although significant improvements have been made, there remains more
work to be done. Ontario's doctors look forward to working with the
Dr. Doug Weir
