I have expressed my significant concern over the pending cancellation of OHIP insured services by Ontario’s optometrists because the Ontario government has refused to come to the table and negotiate a new fee schedule with them for almost thirty years.

Today I voted against the motion extending the powers under the Reopening Ontario Act, and while it has been extended, I am not giving up the fight...Read more
