Bay of Quinte Chambers of Commerce are supporting a call by the Ontario Chamber for reform of Canada’s health care system, allowing more private participation.
An Ontario Chamber report quotes a poll which shows that 80% of Ontarians want broad reform of health care.
Quinte West manager Suzanne Andrews says half the government budget is spent on health care.
Belleville Chamber of Commerce CEO Bill Saunders says cuts such as at the Trenton Memorial Hospital are not the answer.
Saunders says a year-long study on health care would help.
