Debbie Doubletalk's Double Standard

Liberal Health Minister Debbie Doubletalk rides again! This time she's annoyed CEO Tom Closson of the Ontario Hospital Association. When health care bureaucrats are mad at the Liberals, you know things have gotten bad.

Anyway, let's give Mr. Closson the benefit of the doubt. He does have a reason to be annoyed. It seems that Debbie Doubletalk froze wages for hospital employees, but somehow only the non-union employees were prevented from getting wage increases! I guess now we all know what Trudeau meant when he said you couldn't just say  "Zap! You're frozen!" to the economy.

If I didn't know better, I'd say that the Liberals are trying to-gasp- buy peace with unions! In advance of an election, no less!

As for the hospital employees who got screwed because they aren't part of a union? I'd say that sounds suspiciously like cutting money from frontline healthcare....
