MPP Mantha on Ford’s health care centralization


FURTHER QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS, THE MEMBER FROM ALGOMA-MANITOULIN.>>THANK YOU, SPEAKER. OOH, I NEEDED TO GET UP, I NEEDED TO STAND, I NEEDED TO TALK TO THE PAGES. HOW DID YOU LIKE THAT LAST HOUR? RIGHT?! WAS THAT JUST RIVETING AND EVERYTHING? I NEED TO TALK TO THE PEOPLE OF ALGOMA-MANITOULIN WHO SPENT THE LAST HOUR LISTENING TO WHAT THIS GOVERNMENT HAD TO OFFER TO YOU, AND LET ME PUT IT IN SIMPLE TERMS. THEY TALK ABOUT INTEGRATION OF SERVICES, WE’VE DONE IT. LOOK AT ESPANOLA, WE’VE DONE IT. YOU’RE GOING TO BE RECREATING A WHEEL THAT DOESN’T NEED TO BE RECREATED. YOU’RE GOING TO BE TAKING THIS COMMUNITY THAT WILL BE SWALLOWED UP BY OTHERS AND COMPLETELY DEVASTATE WHAT THEY’VE WORKED HARD AT GETTING ACCOMPLISHED AND GETTING DONE. HERE’S THE OTHER THING THEY’RE NOT TELLING YOU BECAUSE THIS IS NOT GOING OUT TO THE PEOPLE, TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF ALGOMA-MANITOULIN. THEY’RE TAKING THE DOORS OFF THE HINGES, OPENING UP WINDOWS AND GUESS WHAT, PRIVATIZATION AND FOR-PROFIT IS WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT’S HAPPENING. MARK MY WORDS, I’M GOING TO BE HERE FOR A WHILE, FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS, AND I HAVE HOPE THE GOOD PEOPLE OF ALGOMA-MANITOULIN SEND ME BACK HERE BECAUSE SOMEBODY IS GOING TO HAVE TO CORRECT THE MESS THAT THIS GOVERNMENT IS ACTUALLY OPENING UP THE DOOR TO. NOW, PAGES, WHEN YOU’RE SITTING IN CLASS AND THE TEACHER SAYS, WE’RE GOING TO BE CHANGING SOME THINGS AND WE WANT YOUR INPUT, WHAT DO YOU DO? YOU RAISE YOUR HAND? HOW ABOUT WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF WE SAY, YOU CAN RAISE YOUR HANDS ALL YOU WANT, BUT WE’RE NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO THE IDEAS. THIS IS WHAT THE GOVERNMENT IS DOING BECAUSE WE HAD THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ACROSS THIS PROVINCE THAT HAVE IDEAS, THAT HAVE WORRIES, THAT HAVE QUESTIONS TO PUT TO THIS GOVERNMENT, AND YOU KNOW WHAT, WE KNOW BEST. WE’RE GOING TO DO WHAT WE BELIEVE IS GOING TO HAPPEN AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO GO OUT AND LISTEN TO ONTARIANS, WE’RE NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO THEIR VIEWS OR THE ORGANIZATIONS OR TO ALL DIFFERENT CORNERS OF THIS PROVINCE. THAT’S WHAT THIS GOVERNMENT IS DOING AND THAT IS WRONG. YOU’RE OPENING UP THE DOOR TO
