  1. Hospitals are empty it seems.

    • A lot of places in Ontario have very little cases. Mainly Toronto and their closely surrounding areas is the issue

      They should be paid more, this why we are losing all our medical professionals, nurses, doctors, etc.. but…. then we import alot for cheaper. This is why our medical professionals leave for other countries or go private. I guess it time we do something hmmm ???

    The majority of Emergency departments are operating at 50% volume though.. come on

  3. Nurses and PSW’s should be rewarded a lot for their efforts. Couldn’t the Fed Govt step in to help Ontario financially also ?

      I disagree Ken. Just because they are part of the Crown controlled government does not entitle them to anything special. They want to make tic tock videos, then they should go on Canadian Idol for cudos.

    The most privileged and union represented always get to be heard. WE ARE ALL SUFFERING.

      If you work for the corrupt Crown you get a free pass. Everyone else has to pay for those passes.

    Really awesome how you found a way to blame this on men. Go to hell.

    Tell that to nonunion non-government workers.

  7. Never let a crisis go to waste…

  8. They are a frontline medical profession. Doctors, firefighters, police and medics are all exempt. If the primary difference between all these groups is that the nurses are in majority women while these other groups are either 50% or male dominated, what else are they to think? She’s pointing out the disparity.

  9. SOOOOO…..
    SNC Lavalin hands 1.9 mil to somebody. Was that tax free? EI? Who received it? Where are REV Canada in witholding taxes on 1.9 mil how many years ago?

  10. Uh huh. We’ve seen the TikTok videos.

  11. How is someone suppose to raise their children making 50$ an hour?!

  12. spare me – they are bored out of their minds. hospitals are dead and they just got a raise!

  13. my friend is nurse – she downloads entire series because there are no patients. It’s all smoke and mirrors. Nurses are hiding the truth

      They are doing worse than hiding the truth, they are collaborating in falsifying it and selling it as truth.

    Hell haven’t y’all heard? The entire public service are giving themselves a huge pay hike and a pat on the back for putting their lives at risk! They call themselves front line hero’s.
