    When we see the failure to care for our elders and that dominant ownership of these facilities are Chinese based, it is clear we need a change. The NDP susgestion is the best to ensure care and keeping the money in Canada.

      That’s incorrect info. The government owns the majority of all long term care facilities. Rivera, is owned by the feds. The feds have appointed all the boards of directors. Socialism is not the answer. We’ve already tried that, and it has failed.

  3. The name of care homes should be changed to neglect homes. Incompetence and corruption lead to disasters.

    Investigate privately owned residences . How much PPE is now being produced in Canada? SO what is the problem for the testing?

  7. Long term care has been a joke way longer than COVID19! it was and is a disgrace!

  8. Private rooms in long term care, so you can introduce isolation on a moment’s notice.
