Ontario Conservatives are refusing to attend local debates across the province. They're refusing to answer questions. They're refusing to participate in democracy...So let's REFUSE TO RE-ELECT THEM.

The Progressive Conservatives have been leaving a trail of empty podiums at local Ontario riding debates, after top campaign officials issued a stern warning about the dangers of participating. toronto.citynews.ca/2022/05/… @CityCynthia

This 2019 piece spells it out- @UVicNursing PhD candidate @Rea_Booker and I on choosing MAID because our health system isn’t doing its job. I am not opposed to MAID at all but this is shameful. ottawacitizen.com/opinion/co… via @ottawacitizethis

📽️ 1 of the ways the Ford gov't is privatizing health care is by privatizing #COVID19 vaccinations, which used to be provided by public health, & #COVID19 testing, which was handed off to for-profit companies charging more than $200 for a test. New video 👇

Injured by what? The wind? These nurses were injured by Ford's security goons. Don't hide this important info with passive phrasing.
Two nurses protesting wage restraint by the Ford government were injured outside the provincial leaders’ debate in Toronto on Monday evening ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=2445…

Calling it: if Ford is re-elected it’s going to be slash-and-burn for public health units in Ontario. I am not wrong.

NEW: From 2010-2019, Ontario's for-profit LTC companies avoided paying $500 MILLION in taxes & diverted $3.8 BILLION away from resident care towards their profits. For-profit LTC companies are the real looters in our healthcare system. Vote. To. End. For. Profit. LTC. #onpoli

This article is about a group of White men who chased down and killed two Indigenous Men. This is how the media reported it. The racism is so loud, yet no one seems to hear it.

Patient's wife said she tells everyone she knows not to vote for Doug Ford. This is just from seeing what nurses go through within the hospital. She's not even a nurse. Doug Ford's refusal to address the nursing shortage is an insult to our publicly funded healthcare system.

This just about sums up my mood these days. To all the haters and racists and anti-abortionists and climate deniers and those who love the war on drugs - and oh yeah, to those who believe Covid no longer exists - well my face just about sums it up

Things continue to move in the wrong direction, Halifax. In the past week, we’ve heard from 19 families new to us – all but one headed by single mums – all of them seeking safe shelter and/or housing. In total they are 20 parents to 46 children.

It sickens me to see how nurses are treated when they speak truth to power in #Ontario. Below is my statement and next steps from @SEIUHealthCan as we explore all legal options to defend our members injured before the provincial leaders’ debate. Read: seiuhealthcare.ca/seiu-healt…
