In the middle of a devastating second wave of COVID-19, Doug Ford just slashed $100 million from long-term care funding.1 2

Decades of cuts and underfunding has led to underpaid and overworked staff, a shortage of essential medical equipment and a sharp decline in the quality of care we're providing our seniors. It’s a crisis.3

Now we’re in a pandemic that has killed over 2,000 seniors. But instead of learning from the first wave of COVID-19, the Ford government is cutting even more from long-term care.4

Right now, opposition MPPs are calling for Ford’s Minister of Long-Term Care, Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, to be fired.5 That means she's hyper-sensitive to public pressure. 

A huge outcry against cuts to long-term care — in the middle of the second wave — could be enough to convince Minister Fullerton to reverse the cuts and shore up funding for long-term care so seniors can have the level of care they deserve. Sign the petition now. 
 

Premier Ford and Minister of Long-Term Care, Dr. Fullerton

Reverse the cuts to long-term care and shore up funding to ensure our seniors get the quality of care they deserve.
