Green candidate – Phil De Luna – Toronto—St. Paul’s

I greatly appreciate the thoughtfulness and research that have gone into these recommendations from the CCSN. As you may know, my fiancée is an operating room nurse, and I have seen and heard firsthand the particularly difficult impacts of the pandemic on those in chronic care, such as cancer patients.

Your questions have educated me, and on all three issues – ensuring continuity of care, bolstering EI sick leave, and improving breast cancer screening – the CCSN’s recommendations seem eminently reasonable. If elected, I would be proud to champion these issues on behalf of cancer patients and survivors.

Best,
Phil
