The 905 Round-Up: Health Care Collapse and Land Grabs for the Rich

November 17, 2022

There is a lot to get to on this episode of the 905 Round-Up!

We start off with a brief summary of the Halton District School Board's inability to come up with a dress code for it's teachers in light of the enormous controversy it found itself in last month.

Then we dive into the ongoing issue of the collapse of our health care system in Ontario.  As hospital after hospital reports their emergency rooms and ICU's closing due to staffing shortages where is the priority in fixing this crisis?

After our break, we examine the continuing shifting of rules around development in the province.  Under the guise of building homes, the rules are being stacked more and more in favour of developers in spite of democracy or the environment.

Lastly, the St. Catharines Standard's front page story was how a living wage in the Niagara region was roughly $20 an hour.  Yet the last big increase in minimum wage was only to $15.  In this age of inflation how are people supposed to make ends meet if they can't be paid properly?

As Ontario collapses we stay on top of it all...
