Stiles, NDP give a fiery welcome back to Ford’s Conservatives at Question Period

QUEEN’S PARK – Marit Stiles, Leader of the Official Opposition NDP, returned to Question Period after the legislative break focused on holding Ford’s Conservatives accountable for Bill 124, Ontario’s strained healthcare system, worsening housing crisis, and skyrocketing cost-of-living:

“We start this new session with yet another policy reversal – Bill 124, a Bill that is and always was unconstitutional,” said Stiles.

“Will the Premier apologize to these workers for stealing their wages with Bill 124 and finally tell Ontarians how much money they spent fighting hardworking nurses, PSWs, teachers, educational assistants and all public sector workers in court?”

Stiles and the NDP refused to allow Conservatives to distract from their track record of corrupt policies, continuous backtracking and lack of real solutions.

“Our province was already struggling with rampant hallway medicine when this government came in, and their choice to target workers made things even worse. Will he admit his choices worsened the crisis facing our health care system?"

Laser-focused on reversing the damage Ford’s Conservatives have done to the province’s healthcare system, Stiles called on Ford’s Conservatives to focus their next reversal on fixing the mess they caused.

“If the government is going to continue backing up the policy train this session, can they make reversing their privatization of health care the next signature policy reversal?”
