    What:        Cross-Province Media Conference by Teleconference

                 Ontario Health Coalition releases results of interviews with
                 50 Ontario paramedics on the consequences of closing local
                 hospital emergency departments

                 The Ontario Health Coalition releases the findings of a new
                 report, based on interviews with 50 paramedics across
                 Ontario, on what the provincial government's planned
                 emergency room closures would mean for patient care in
                 communities across the province. The report will address the
                 following questions:

                 -  What do paramedics think of the Ontario government's plan
                    to close small and rural hospital emergency rooms?
                 -  Can paramedics really replace hospital emergency rooms?
                 -  What are the implications for patients and customers of
                    ambulance services?
