Just got off the phone with my gf in Virginia. Less than a week after school started her 10YO tests positive for COVID. Two days ago he had a sore throat, this evening he will likely be intubated. Who will protect the children?

These guys are always about shiny balls. <ahem> Distract, distract, distract. They also know they are the crest of an election and #LTC is going to be a pebble in their shoe. Frankly I'm not sure if what was announced amounts anything in real time. I don't trust them. #onpoli
I am not even sure where to start here - @RodPhillips01 - scrapping the #LTCHA is literally throwing the baby out with the bath water!!! What are you thinking? And it’s fine and dandy fines are doubled - let’s see if they are actually handed out. #ltc #elderrights #elderlaw

Has anyone seen the price tag on the LL gear?
Are they pulling our legs? Sorry, Lululemon but this seems pretty awful. Like really REALLY awful. Am I wrong? PU. #canada #olympics

This pretty much sums up the state of LTCs, as well.
Harris rolled back #ODSP #OW during his reign of terror. McGuinty/Wynne basically let the status quo remain untouched. Basically 20 yrs. later nothing has changed. Now we are at the edge of a major crisis being handled by a gov that doesn't manage crisis at all. #onpoli #ODSP

Nothing changes if nothing changes. It’s pretty clear that in the #NHL nothing changes.
The Blackhawks betrayed Kyle Beach, a survivor of sexual assault, in 2010. Logan Mailloux, who distributed a sexual photo without consent, was drafted by the Habs in the first round in 2021. In case anyone thinks the NHL’s priorities have changed, they have not.

Family Caregivers come in all shapes and sizes, from young children to grandparents caring for grandchildren. They do it often without support, costing them financially & emotionally. Caregivers save the gov millions of $$ yet get virtually no support. #caregiversmatter
In community care nursing Essential Care Partners are part of patient’s care team. They are informal (meaning unpaid) caregivers but they are essential for best patient outcomes. #EssentialCarePartners #PatientSafetyWeek

Like how @maxfawcett dissects Ibbitson’s usual expectations of slagging off the newly appointed Fed Cabinet. #canpoli
As always, there have been some bad takes in #cdnpoli on the recent federal cabinet shuffle. But this one, by John Ibbitson, takes the cake for me. Allow me to explain.... theglobeandmail.com/politics…

I think we all remember the 1st time we saw this heart wrenching story of Cathy and her Dad Paul. I remember thinking, it can't get that bad?... And here we are 2 yrs later. No further explanation needed. Keep fighting the good fight 🔥💪👊 @CathyMParkes
Cathy Parkes (@CathyMParkes), who lost her dad at Orchard Villa: "It pains me every time I have to remember and talk about how my father died ... but I do it because he is one of 1000s who have suffered needlessly and because nothing has changed." Clip from Oct 4 #LTC rally ⬇️

I can’t decide if Conservative Halloween parties are amazing because they’re all so into cosplay, or incredibly boring because they all dress up like construction workers.
Yesterday, I introduced legislation that puts workers back in the driver’s seat. We will never stop #WorkingForWorkers.

Millions in taxpayer dollars earmarked for Ontario LTC company that allegedly left residents malnourished toronto.ctvnews.ca/millions-… via @CTVToronto This is despicable. Ford rewarding his buddies after they neglected, mismanaged patients and refused to keep their families updated.

For 20yrs Ajax has called for these lands to be protected from urbanization given the #watersheds sensitivity. Comprised of prime agricultural lands, containing sensitive hydrological features, completely surrounded by the #Greenbelt. There is no question it needs to be protected
LIVE - I'm in Ajax this morning with NDP MPPs @jennkfrench & @shaw_sandy to announce that an NDP govt would immediately expand Ontario's Greenbelt to include the Carruthers Headwaters. #onpoli nitter.net/i/broadcasts/1Yq…

Patient known to be violent. We were cautioned but pt suckered me: hoofed me in thigh. If we had enough staff, 2 staff would provide care to help avoid #assault & #injury. Assault hurts >90% of #nurses. Nurses are vulnerable. We don’t get danger pay. Instead we get #Bill124.
