About nine members of the Ontario Health Coalition occupied Liberal Health Minister George Smithermans office, Mar. 4 demanding that the government halt plans to build P3 hospitals in Brampton in Ottawa.

The Liberals are currently betraying their pre-election promises to stop private hospitals (P3s) in ongoing secret deals, investigating at least ten private hospital developments and redevelopments, the coalitions statement read. Today we are at the Ministry of Health to voice our concerns directly, to declare to Hon. Minister Smitherman that our health system is not for sale to private corporations-corporations such as Carillion PLC, with its controversial record of World Record-long wait times, staff and bed cuts, injury and death of workers due to health and safety issues, exorbitant executive salaries and terrible worker pay.
