According to the Financial Accountability Officer:

“Since 2012, a freeze in base operating funding to hospitals and wage restraint have been significant contributors in slowing health sector expense growth. Even with the additional health sector spending in the 2017 budget, hospital and OHIP program area spending is set to grow more slowly than their core cost drivers. It is not clear to what extent the Province can continue to rely on temporary measures (e.g. wage restraint) to achieve budget targets. Unless the Province can find significant efficiencies within the OHIP and hospital program areas, there is a fiscal risk that more spending will be required to avoid reductions in health care access or quality. In the years beyond 2019-20, budgetary issues in Ontario’s health sector will only become more acute, as Ontario’s growing and aging population will put additional upward pressure on health care costs over the long-term.”

You may be wondering why there is a decline in Health Care spending by the Province…that’s because it is still following the same failed report that recommends that government take money from Health Care and put it toward other things…And maybe this is why you’re paying to park at the hospital…

Is this what you want? I don’t think so – to balance a budget by taking away funding for Long Term Care, hospitals, etc. SERIOUSLY – That’s why Ontario needs something different and something way better…The Trillium Party of Ontario – without good health quality – where’s the quality of life? We hear you because it’s our health care too!
