GRIZ­ZLY STATE OF AF­FAIRS

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Rolf Ger­sten­berger, co-chair of Hamil­ton Health Coali­tion, left, and Natalie Mehra, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the coali­tion, carry a teddy bear af­ter a protest against pri­va­ti­za­tion of the health care sys­tem in Gore Park Tues­day at noon hour. “Canada’s pub­lic health care sys­tem is un­der threat by pri­vate prof­its-seek­ing clin­ics that want to take ser­vices out of our lo­cal pub­lic hos­pi­tals. These pri­vate clin­ics bill OHIP for tests and surg­eries and bill pa­tients hun­dreds or even thou­sands of dol­lars as well,” said Mehra.
