The Ontario Government ran a comb through it’s hair, pushed aside the empties and dragged themselves out of the Muskoka lounger and into Queens Park today for a quick dog-and-pony. It’s summer, bitches. YOU, the taxpayer should be heaping praise on the lot for taking time out of their summer break to refill the gaslights and scuttle back off to the vacation home.
Situation not Unprecedented
Newly appointed Minister of Health, Sylvia Jones said the rolling closures of emergency rooms Ontario is facing is not unique. In very toddler-esque fashion, she told reporters that health units across Canada have also reported scheduling difficulties and closures.
If that wasn’t enough, she doubled down on her idiotic non-answer and threw hospital staff directly under the bus.
If I was working on something important, like, say, preventing people from dying due to lack of healthcare, and I said to my boss 'I got quite a lot done today' without giving her specifics, I think I'd be in quite a lot of trouble. How is this acceptable? https://t.co/WG15tzaQ2v

“So when there are ebbs and flows of a high incidence of people who are taking vacation — appropriately so — then we need to make sure that we have the systems in place.” – Ontario Minister of Health Sylvia Jones
I guess the “rightfully so” codicil just stitches another loop on a nurse’s scrubs to hang yet another government failure on their beaten and bloody profession?

This isn’t over. In fact, it just started
We’re working on something more in-depth regarding the Ontario hospital closures, but I had to write something immediately to those who, for some unknown reason still work in this putrid, rotten and dysfunctional system we call healthcare in this province: Thank you.
You’re tired of hearing it. You probably won’t eat pizza ever again, because those appreciation pizza parties probably make you wanna throw up now. Your “Luigi’s 3-for-1 Special” nightmares are probably still haunting you. We don’t even honk for you anymore. Remember when we all changed our profile pics to say nice things about you? Yeah… The Ontario government has us right where they want us. Tired of it. Including being tired of supporting the only people who keep us alive. They’ve gone so far as to gaslight us and make YOU the problem.
Just know, you’re not forgotten. You’re seen. Your tenacity and dedication are still appreciated by the majority of reality-based citizens of Ontario you fight for every single day, and we aren’t going to shut up on your behalf.
Again, thank you.
P.S.: You’re watching Ontario’s Healthcare System Be Purposely Choked to Make Room for Privatization
More on that later. If you want a sneak peek, go and search out the private healthcare lobby currently shooting on full auto at YOUR elected government. Hot stuff to watch someone kill their own child, just to adopt another to reap the subsidies. It’s as American as Apple Pie.
