I received this letter from Amanda, a mother of two boys. She learned recently that her future with her two boys may be in jeopardy, not because of a pandemic, nor a virus, but because her Cancer surgery has been delayed again! Doug Ford, how can you allow your harmful lockdowns and oppressive COVID policies remove needed health care from Amanda?
In response to Amanda’s letter, as well as too many others who have shared their stories of delayed surgeries, treatments, and screenings, I have started a petition to the Ford Government, demanding he reopen our healthcare and allow Amanda to receive her necessary cancer surgery.
Sign the petition below and help spread this petition to your community by downloading our printable petition here.
Help spread Amanda’s story by sharing with your friends and family. Contact your MPP and the Premier, tell them it is time to stop playing god with their COVID policies and we must reopen our hospitals to those in need, without these harmful restrictions.
A PETITION TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO
“Health Care is an Essential Service”
WHEREAS the Government of Ontario has exclusive jurisdiction over health care in Ontario;
AND WHEREAS the Government of Ontario has denied access to necessary and life-saving procedures to the citizens it is obligated to care for;
AND WHEREAS the Government of Ontario made these decisions based on modelling projections for COVID 19 while entirely ignoring the diagnosis and treatment of other illnesses;
AND WHEREAS an ever increasing number of cancer patients are having their surgeries significantly delayed through the Government of Ontario’s willingness to sacrifice these lives on the altar of misguided COVID protocols, putting so many at risk of greater illness or death;
WE, the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: that the Government stop playing God with people’s lives, and provide necessary surgeries to those who need them as they are obligated to do under the law.
