All-Candidate Meeting: Your Health Matters
May 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The Port Hope Northumberland Community Health Centre is hosting an all-candidate meeting to discuss healthcare, which is always a top budget issue in Ontario. The event will be at Ganaraska Trail Public School, 34 Percival St., Port Hope, and will be held on Thursday, May 10 at 6:45pm.
Healthcare is always a critical topic, not least because it is our biggest expense. But we are also in a healthcare crisis: many Ontarians don’t have a family doctor; wait times for ER visits, surgeries, and specialists are far too long; there is a shortage of long-term care facilities, a fact that becomes more crucial as baby boomers age; mental health issues are becoming increasingly recognized but still lack funding for proper treatment; opioid addiction and overdoses are at epidemic levels; and costs continue to rise.
You can see the Green Party’s vision for healthcare reform here, but be sure to come out and see how all of the candidates respond to the questions and present their party’s platform on this issue. Bring a friend, and bring a question!
