Londoners will be part of a massive rally at Queen’s Park Tuesday organized to call on the provincial government to end so-called “hallway medicine.”
The Ontario Health Coalition is bussing people in from across the province. It’s expected between 5,000 and 8,000 people in total will be on hand at the rally’s peak.
“We’re really concerned and we’re trying to pre-empt him and build a movement to say ‘Don’t touch our public health care or we will fight back,'” he said.
Hanks said two buses will leave at 9 a.m., one from Masonville Place, the other from the Salvation Army’s Centre of Hope on Wellington Street.
“Hopefully he’s going to back off on cutting and privatizing because we’re not going to go away,” he said,
“We’re going to keep fighting him tooth and nail because seniors have paid in to this for years and they deserve [better].”
“I know we can improve the situations, we’ve been cutting taxes for the rich and corporations for years and years and years.”
