Canadians in long-term care deserve so much more.
Canada has the worst record for COVID-19 deaths in long-term care (LTC) among rich countries.
Almost 80 per cent of COVID-19 deaths in Canada have been in LTC. In the past few weeks alone, hundreds have died as the terrible toll of infection and death continues.
This is a national shame and an avoidable tragedy.
After listening and working closely with experts, Greens have proposed urgent measures to get COVID-19 under control in LTC homes immediately.
You can help! Tell the Prime Minister his government must step in now, working with provincial/territorial leaders, health authorities and LTC residents and families to end this crisis and save lives.
