What a horrible holiday weekend it's turning out to be for Dalton. Now he's releasing sex offenders into your neighbourhood!
And he's making brutal, ideologically motivated cuts to health care that hurt women and babies!
New mothers having trouble breastfeeding or suffering from postpartum depression could fall through the cracks because of planned cuts to a provincial program guaranteeing calls and visits from public health nurses, Ontario nurses warn.
Cutting the Healthy Babies Healthy Children program will place more mothers and children at risk, says a letter to Premier Dalton McGuinty from Ontario Nurses’ Association president Linda Haslam-Stroud.
“I would urge the government to revisit these decisions and stand up for our most vulnerable citizens,” said the letter, sent late last month.
Under the program, introduced in 1998, new mothers are offered a phone call from a public health nurse within 48 hours of discharge from hospital and a subsequent home visit.
Public health nurses have been told that as of next January, they will no longer be required to make contact with new mothers deemed “low risk.”
What next? Is Dalton going to kneecap former Liberal Premier David Peterson? Oh wait, he did that already.....
