Doug Ford turned his back as opioid deaths skyrocketed

Conservatives won’t lift a finger as addiction tears families and communities apart

SUDBURY – Steven Del Duca joined Sudbury first responders to announce the Ontario Liberal action plan to save lives in the opioid crisis – something the Ford Conservatives can’t or won’t do. Since 2018, emergency department visits due to opioid overdoses have skyrocketed by 143% in the area served by Public Health Sudbury & Districts, and Doug Ford is nowhere to be found.

“Opioid addiction is the epidemic that the Ford Conservatives have ignored,” said Del Duca. “It’s tearing families and communities apart – but the Ford Conservatives increased stigma for those struggling with addiction while cutting funding from people who needed it most. Ontario has got to be a province where people care for one another, ensuring anyone that experiences a mental health or addiction crisis gets the help they need.”

Emergency department opioid overdoses have skyrocketed on Doug Ford’s watch – from 9,154 in 2018 to 12,527 in 2020. In 2021, the Ontario Drug Policy Research Network found that opioid overdoses were up more than 75% since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Ontario is hurting as the Conservatives slice and dice public health care services, opening the door to private companies looking to make a quick buck. Meanwhile, mayors report being ghosted by both Doug Ford and Christine Elliott. According to the mayor of Sudbury, Doug Ford “refuses to talk and his ministers refuse to respond or provide funding that we need… [we are] not even getting the courtesy of a callback from the minister of health.”

Ontario Liberals will give people more support and time with their families

Four-day work week and basic income pilot will improve work-life balance and economic dignity

Nickel Belt – Ontario Liberals will restore workers’ economic dignity and improve their work-life balance with a four-day workweek. Our plan will also bring back the Basic Income Pilot Project, which Doug Ford promised not to cancel – and then callously cut immediately upon taking office.

Gilles Proulx: Time to put famillies first

Ontario Liberals will launch a four-day work demonstration to determine how a shorter week boosts quality of life, improves work-life balance, and provides much needed relief – without a loss in productivity. We will work with businesses and labour groups to design and evaluate the model. If it demonstrates potential, Ontarians could have more time with family and doing what they love most.

Ontario Liberal housing plan puts land speculators on notice

Cost of Living - Vote for Nickel Belt Liberal candidate Gilles Proulx Plan will target underused lands like stripmalls and government properties

Nickel Belt – The Ontario Liberals have announced their plan to make housing more affordable and available to both renters and homebuyers – a key component of the party’s bold vision for Ontario, A Place to Grow. The comprehensive plan includes nearly forty policies that will make buying, renting, and living in a home easier and more affordable.

Gilles Proulx: "A Plan for families not shareholders”

The Ontario Liberal plan will build 1.5 million homes, including truly affordable homes like new social and supportive housing for people who need it. To help double the pace of homebuilding, the Liberal plan will create a new Ontario Home Building Corporation (OHBC) to finance and build new, affordable homes.

This OHBC will work with local communities, as well as not-for-profit and private housing partners to build and maintain affordable homes of all types, either as a primary financing source or builder. Any homes sold by the OHBC will be available only to first-time home buyers, and any proceeds will go directly back into creating more affordable homes.
