NDP Still Pressing For Inquiry Expansion

Posted on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 07:37 AM

The provincial government says seniors don't need to be afraid of the care received in long term care homes.

This after three "cease admission" orders were issued to homes in southern Ontario recently.

The NDP says the orders are an indication of the systemic problems in homes across the province and want an existing inquiry to expand its scope.

Health Minister Eric Hoskins says it's not the quality of care seniors and family members need to be afraid of and accuses the NDP of fearmongering.
