TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
Whereas the COVID-19 pandemic revealed the shocking conditions in Long-Term Care homes
Whereas previous governments built a system where big, for-profit
corporations warehoused seniors in institution-like facilities
Whereas seniors deserve to be able to stay in their homes longer, and have access to high quality, culturally responsive care in small, family-like care homes
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario,
to end wait times for long-term care, culturally responsive care, and home care; build 50,000 new long-term care spaces; and hire thousands more personal support workers, and make their jobs better paid and full-time, along with guaranteeing better training.
