Health services in Hamilton are under attack as a wave of service cuts hits hospitals across Ontario. This year, more than 70 per cent of hospitals will face deficits due to chronic underfunding by the McGuinty government. Many health services and programs at Hamilton hospitals have been cut as a result.

The community, organized by the Hamilton Health Coalition, is mobilizing to send local Liberal MPPs a clear message: “Stop the hospital cuts!”
