Media Advisory - URGENT townhall meeting on homecare moratorium

    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.

    WHO:     Helen Tindale, RN, Registered Nurses Association of Ontario
             Natalie Mehra, Director of the Ontario Health Coalition
