OHC Ford gov't rushing through Home Care Law during pandemic

Almost unbelievably, the Ford government is rushing through their new home and community care law during the pandemic.

There is very little notice for three days of public hearings by web conference as follows. I am attaching our media release, fact sheet and summary of the Act for your information. Please note the deadline to apply for standing (that means, to make a presentation to the standing committee) is next Tuesday. I will send out our submission as soon as possible.

Thank you,
