A lot of changing in Ontario and it's hard to keep up. Every day I will expand the #FordCutsTracker list by posting about a cut that has happened under the Ford government. This way, everyone will have an easy list to reference. #ONPoli #TOPoli #ScarbTO #FordCutsHurt
#FordCutsTracker #1:
The Ford government retroactively revoked eight months of funding for the College of Midwives of Ontario in addition to cancelling all of their future funding. #ONpoli #TOPoli #ScarbTO #ONhealth #FordCutsHurt

#FordCutsTracker #2
One of the first things the Ford government did was cancel the Liberals’ planned $335 million/ year funding for mental health.

It’s a major conflict of interest for MDs to both prescribe &dispense meds to patients: it’s reportable to regulatory college

▶️bit.ly/2Isu71Q

If it’s considered harmful to pts &ethically wrong for MDs, why is @fordnation govt permitting it for pharmacists? 1/2 #onpoli
Cdn MDs have post-graduate training
-Family Doctor has min 10yrs of university training
-Specialist MD has min 12-16yrs of university training
-PLUS ALL MDs have thousands of hrs of hands-on clinical training

Pharmacists only complete basic 4-6yr undergraduate degree 2/2 #onpoli
IDENTICAL to regulatory body of ON MDs, College of Physicians &Surgeons of ON (CPSO), regulatory body of ON Pharmacists, ON College of Pharmacists (OCP), CLEARLY states under “#Accountability” that Pharmacists must “Avoid #ConflictOfInterest.” 3/

1/2M living in ON don’t qualify for OHIP b/c they are not permanent residents or Cdn citizens: their “free” healthcare would cost ON taxpayers ~$2.5B/yr under NDP’s “sanctuary province” & $Billions/yr more from influx once ON opens borders for “free medical tourism”. 1/3

#onpoli
Why are none of these $BILLIONS needed to make ON a “sanctuary province” not costed in @OntarioNDP’s policy platform?

This will be a significant burden on our existing #ONHealth Crisis, esp as our senior pop’n is projected to grow by >68% over next 20yrs. 2/3

#onpoli #onelxn
These $Billions are in addition to $7Billion math mistake already found in NDP platform

Patient care in ON is already significantly rationed to pay our existing $1B/mth interest on ON’s massive $350B debt. I’m fearful for the future of #ONHealth 3/3
