Further to my post MP's want listeriosis hearing; but who is investigating the hundreds of C. difficile deaths in McGuinty's Ontario? , today we have another ominous-sounding federal listeriosis story.
But again, why isn't anyone asking which laws Dalton McGuinty's Ontario Liberals broke when their state-run, state-funded health care monopoly ended up killing some 500 patients in recurring C. difficile outbreaks?
Did Canadian Press - or any other "experts" - ever request "all transcripts and minutes" regarding "crucial exchanges" from Premier McGuinty's office; or from his health ministers, Smitherman and Caplan; or from any other senior Liberal government officials, regarding what they knew, when they knew, and what they did since 2003, during several systemic C. difficle outbreaks?
Where is that supposedly-public information? Or is that privileged Liberal-only information?
Where is Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty's "accountability act" for his own Liberal
Where is Ontario's Liberal health-care glasnost?
All we get is Liberal Healthcare Duplicity delivered by unaccountable edict from behind an authoritarian Liberal Iron Curtain.
OVER 500 PATIENTS DIED FROM C. DIFFICILE INFECTIONS IN McGUINTY"S ONTARIO, YET MY LOCAL LIBERAL FRANCHISE HOLDER, ST. CATHARINES MPP JIM BRADLEY, REFUSES TO ANSWER QUESTIONS REGARDING HIS LIBERAL GOVERNMENT'S MONOPOLISTIC HEALTH CARE POLICIES.
WHERE IS LIBERAL MPP JIM BRADLEY'S "DUTY TO ASSIST" ??
Why are Bradley's Liberals hiding from independent scrutiny of their health-care policies; hiding from independent review of their decisions, including their health care funding allotments?
Why did the Liberals deny Ontario's ombudsman access to independently investigate the Liberal's secretive health monopoly?
Below are some of the dozens of concerns I brought to the attention of Liberal MPP Jim Bradley, which a typically-smug Bradley has ignored:
-A year later, Liberal Jim Bradley still secretive about high death-rate in his government-funded hospital
-Liberals underfund Niagara health-care while denying link to high patient death-rate in St. Catharines
Is it just constituents that McGuinty's smarmy majority-government Liberals are ignoring?
Or are some members of the press now also slowly having epiphanies about the Liberal's "cloak and dagger" health-care system [as ombudsman Andre Marin once described it].
Mike Williscraft, Niagara This Week's editorial director, wrote in "NHS has few options in fight to trim its deficit" (Feb.13, 2009):
"I like Premier McGuinty. I have met him many times over the years in my work with the Ontario Community Newspaper Association. The fact I have an appreciation for the fellow does not mean he doesn't cheese me off when puts on his teflon coat for press scrums, as he did for his presser this week when the Liberals were in town for party meetings."
If Williscraft is 'cheesed off' with McGuinty's stonewalling techniques, how does Williscraft think other Ontarians - those who aren't so fortunate to rub shoulders with Liberal politicians - feel?
Mr. Williscraft, next time you meet them, please feel free, on my behalf, to ask health-care cutters Jim Bradley or Dalton McGuinty any question from my above-mentioned letters.
Let me know if you get an answer.
