Thank you for your email.
I’m very happy to share that the Ontario Liberal Party has a plan to clear the surgical and diagnostic backlog with $1 Billion of investment over two years. Our healthcare system has been severely stressed by the pandemic and it’s time to invest and ensure the capacity is there to take care of all of us.
We will build capacity by hiring more nurses, doctors, paramedics, PSWs and other medical professionals.
Cancer has touched so many families in Ontario – including mine. I want to ensure that all Ontarians have equitable access to healthcare and that cancer patients receive the urgent care they need.
It will take time and there are no shortcuts to fixing our healthcare system but we can – and will, get it done.
