October 25, 2018

City of Kawartha Lakes residents added their voices to one of the largest public rallies at Queen’s Park, opposing the Doug Ford government’s plans for the future of health care.

Bonnie Kennedy, co-chair of the Kawartha Lakes Health Care Coalition with Barbara Doyle and Zack Miller, said the local group decided to join other coalition chapters Tuesday (Oct. 23) afternoon following meetings led by the Ontario Health Coalition regarding the proposed merger of Ross Memorial Hospital and the Peterborough Regional Health Centre.

“We decided we wanted to be more vocal about what is not only happening to health care in Ontario, but also our community hospital,” said Kennedy, adding the local group has also circulated a petition opposing the merger and is holding a Rally For Ross on Monday (Oct. 29) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
