Ontario's Health-Care Cutbacks Will Leave Vulnerable Patients Suffering

Recently, a lot of media have been reporting on the dispute between Ontario's doctors and the Liberal government headed by Kathleen Wynne, and her Health Minister, Dr. Eric Hoskins.

Dear Eric Hoskins - Please Return to Good Faith Negotiations

Dr. Hoskins, you in particular have been very fortunate to have worked in many positions where you could be in charge, and set you own terms. While you clearly understand the hard work, dedication and passion it takes to get through medical school and residency, I don't think you appreciate the frustration that comes when, after all that, your voice is not accepted when you advocate for your patients.
