“We knew that ordering regional health authorities to cut millions from their budgets would hurt patient care, and now we’re seeing the damage that it’s causing." — Michelle Gawronsky, MGEU President
“It’s prudent that the government act now to fill those 400 positions before closing any sites, because until that happens, no improvements to patient care are possible.” — Michelle Gawronsky, MGEU President
“Our Canadian friends on the East Coast have taken a significant step forward for public health and safety and are showing true leadership when it comes to legalizing marijuana” — Michelle Gawronsky, MGEU President
