OFL OPPOSES BILL 36 AT QUEEN'S PARK-TUESDAY, 7 FEBRUARY 9:OO A.M.

Attention: Assignment Editor, Health/Medical Editor, Media Editor, News Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor TORONTO--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 6, 2006) - "Bill 36 is not good for patients, health care workers or the system," says OFL executive vice-president, Terry Downey. "This proposal would in fact give little power to health care providers, the people they serve or local communities."

Downey will present the Ontario Federation of Labour's Submission on Tuesday, February 7th at 9:00 a.m.

Bill 36, The Local Health System Integration Act, 2005
Standing Committee on Social Policy
Main Legislative Building
Room 151
Queen's Park, Toronto

The OFL joins health care workers and many community organizations in its opposition to Bill 36. "This is just one more push to open the door to the privatization of our health system," Downey said.
