Real NDP plan for home care is clear – less home care
This morning Greg Selinger and the NDP made a desperate promise about home care, but leaked WRHA documents tell a different story. One leaked memo indicates that the WRHA is “temporarily suspending all external hires for Home Care Attendants”. Another leaked memo reveals that “issues and challenges” have led to a decision to “pause” implementation of full-time home care for “forseeable future”. In other words, Greg Selinger has bungled the job after 12 years – but he still thinks he can get it fixed in 16, and is trying to hide the trouble until after the election.
“Twelve years ago, Greg Selinger and the NDP promised to end hallway medicine in six months. They broke that promise,” says Manitoba Progressive Conservative Leader Hugh McFadyen. “At the doors during the election, home care clients have been telling us for weeks that the NDP had cut back their service. These WRHA documents show that hiring of home care attendants was stopped, and now the NDP are trying to hide it until after the election.”
After twelve years of the NDP we are the violent crime capital. After twelve years of broken promises, we still have hallway medicine. Now the NDP are desperately seeking sixteen straight years. Manitobans are telling us it’s time for change. Voting Progressive Conservative will deliver a stronger, safer Manitoba.
