With Bill 41, the convenience of the bureaucracy and administration of health care gets priority over actual front line service.
Rather than addressing the need for more doctors and front line care, Ontario is going to hire more bureaucrats to manage services and direct patient care in a manner most convenient to the government's administration, regardless of patient wishes and needs. This government's unwillingness to have open and frank discussions with health sector workers, nurses, and physicians on what is and isn’t working is problematic, and has resulted in a bill that is nothing more than an ineffectual game of whack-a-mole.
