  1. Oop I’m early

  2. Does anyone think the government will do much better? Honestly?

  3. something sinister about this

  4. do NOT trust a thing they say

    Why would someone put their aging parent into one of these places? They’re like death traps

  6. How many times have we heard the care givers steal from the elderly.
    How many times have we heard the care givers verbally and physically abuse the elderly in their care. These care givers should be vetted every two years to prevent abuse. If these so called care givers really care. They would have reported these poor conditions the elderly is living in.

    • These homes should be shut down and the families need to take responsibility and take care of their loved ones.

  7. What about the province? The provincial government is corrupt

    There are two words you should never use together; “moral” and “government”……

  9. Since hospitals are in the provincial list of the Constitution, by analogy care homes should be in the provincial list not the federal list. What is needed is better provincial supervision of standards and practices in care homes. Better regulation would drive up the cost of care in these homes.
    The federal government could have a role in harmonizing standards by contributing to the extra cost of regulation based on provincial compliance with a federal-provincial agreement on what the standards should be.

  10. You want your loved ones cared for properly…… DO IT YOURSELF! Take care of your family. Don’t shove your parent or loved one into one of these homes.

    The STAFF should NOT be our MAIN concerns, our elderly are the MAIN concern! The staff can get other jobs some of them should work with inanimate things, ONLY!

    The Gaétan Barrette reform put longterm homes in Quebec in a vulnerable position and the Legault government will have to answer for the catastrophic situation.

  14. If your going to help a senior center Quebec and Ontario then you better help all centers in the whole country. There all need help.

    This is truly a misleading report! Cuts were drastic during McGuinty and Wynne era! 80 % of homes are privately owned as such apparently not under the same rules.
