Official Opposition health critic France Gélinas has added her voice to the growing demands that the government take steps to ensure that public health care is protected from the owners of family health clinics in the province.

During Question Period on July 19, Gélinas demanded accountability and transparency from the owners of the Owen Sound Family Health Clinic and the Port Arthur Health Centre, where workers have been on strike for weeks.

"These are health care professionals," said Gélinas. "They shouldn’t have to be on strike to protect public health care, to stop nursing cuts, and to demand respect and dignity on the job. What will this government do to help these front-line health care workers and to ensure that people, not profit, come first in our health care system?"
