Doug Ford expanding the role of private clinics
Manage episode 352719076 series 1792955
For-profit, privately-run clinics in Ontario will see expanded power to perform surgeries covered by OHIP. But will privatizing medical procedures lead to shortages of doctors, nurses, and staff in already under-staffed hospitals? Then, Ontario's auditor general will decide this week whether to open an investigation into the Ford government's plan to develop the Greenbelt. What are the environmental impacts of this and what will the impact be on municipalities? Co-hosts John Michael McGrath and Steve Paikin give the Liberal party a post-mortem on a report that breaks down the party's dismal performance in the last election. What does it mean for the future of the party and how will it elect its leader? And we remember David Onley, Ontario's 28th lieutenant governor, who died last weekend.
