Given more than two-thirds of COVID-19 related deaths happened in long-term care homes during the first wave, and more frequently in for-profit facilities, Ontario’s opposition wants to get money making companies out of the system.
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath will force a vote in the legislature today on a motion to get for-profit companies out of long-term care and replace them with an all non-profit and public system.
”COVID-19 revealed a disaster behind the walls of long-term care homes,” says Horwath.
”More than 1,900 people have died, shattering thousands of families.  And a second wave is upon us.  We need to take action to protect seniors this time, and we have to do it now.”
