The @OntarioPCParty put out this media advisory about Doug Ford's campaign stops today.
When we asked for the locations, so that we could send cameras, we were told: "Today’s events are not open to media." #onpoli
"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, CityNews has learned."
A member of SEIU, the union that represents nurses, lies injured on Yonge St. after he & others tried to sit in the path that Doug Ford would have taken. Supporters & protesters gathered outside TVO site of the Provincial election leaders debate. #ONpoli#OntarioVotes
Disturbing to watch given the additional context provided in the thread below, which suggests political violence against a nurse.
I refrained from posting about this incident yesterday because the nature of the medical emergency was unclear.
An Emergency Room staffed with 8 nurses when there should be 22.
Think about yourself arriving at that ER, needing critical care. What if you were giving birth? What if you were having a heart attack?
This is what health care looks like under @fordnation.
This is ridiculous. Yea, nurses the "backbone" with broken backs from being overworked. If you care to know, there are only 8 nurses at this ER tonight...should be 22. Nurses are so done with being thanked despite your Bill 124.
That media talks about baby formula shortage w/o knowing whats going on is amazing. Trump's USMCA restricted imports of formula from Canada, so we imported no formula from Canada in 2021, leaving us vulnerable to domestic shock. The shock hit when Abbott plant was contaminated.
These MPPs couldn't quite make ends meet on their 6-figure salaries, but expect people on ODSP to live on $1,169/month and they limited wage increases for nurses to 1% for 3 years.
When we say #VoteThemAllOut, we mean every single one.
