In a previous post I opined that we need to remember forgotten frontline workers like grocery clerks, on the assumption that health care, including LTC (long term care) workers were not forgotten. I was apparently too optimistic based on an letter to the editor on MidlandToday.ca. Our seniors and those who care for them are being forgotten, and the provincial government is even shielding the corporate operators from liability for putting profits over people. This is unacceptable. So much for Doug Ford’s thundering about

I will move heaven and earth to do what is right, to help these people, to help those who need us. That is our job

– Doug Ford, May 26, As quoted in a letter to the editor of MidlandToday.ca

As someone else put it, in another place, “Looking sincere on television isn’t enough Mr. Ford”.
