Massive Hospital Cuts and Privatization in Ottawa

Ottawa is Ground Zero for hospital privatization in Ontario.

The Ottawa Hospital is facing among the harshest health service cuts of anywhere in the province. Thousands of surgeries and hospital procedures are being offloaded, cut and privatized to for-profit clinics (day hospitals).

The privatization of clinical hospital care is unprecedented. It threatens the start of for-profit hospitals. It must be stopped.

We Can Win!

Across Canada, tens of thousands of people have taken a stand to keep local hospitals public. And they have succeeded!

In New Brunswick, attempts to bring in private for-profit hospitals were soundly defeated by massive public opposition.

In Quebec, the provincial government is re-publicizing services because the private clinics have been a disaster.

All welcome. Please help spread the word.
