To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
Whereas for all Ontarians—no matter who they are, or where they live—the health of their family comes first, and it should come first for the government of Ontario;
Whereas 1,200 nurses have been fired since January 2015;
Whereas hospital beds are being closed across Ontario; and
Whereas hospital budgets have been frozen for four years, and increases this year will not keep up with inflation or a growing population;
We, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
Stop the cuts to hospitals, and ensure that, at a minimum, hospital funding keeps up with the growing costs of inflation and population growth, each and every year.
