Protect Public Healthcare: Eric Vandewall
We know our healthcare system is in crisis but there are solutions that don't involve privatization or jeopardize patient care. The Ford government is ramming through their privatization plans and we need hospital CEOs to speak out against privatization and protect public healthcare.
If we can flood hospital CEOs with a wave of public pressure from local community members — calling on them to reject Ford's privatization plans — it could be enough for CEOs to speak out against his plans.
Why is this important?
Hospital CEOs hold a significant amount of sway with the government — and for the most part they don't hear from the public. Right now, most hospital CEOs haven't rejected Ford's privatization plans. In fact, a couple of them have actually spoken out in support of it. But they haven't heard from the community their hospital serves.
