Doctors fear Ontario not equipped for influx of refugees

Don’t worry. Be happy, is the dewey-eyed message being sent by Ontario Health Minister Eric Hoskins about bringing 10,000 Syrian refugees into Ontario.

In fact, he assured the public as recently as Friday that this province has the capacity to provide whatever health care the new arrivals may need.

But doctors say quite the opposite — that it’s virtually “impossible to do” given the strains on the province’s health-care system and the fact that there are already 800,000 patients without a family doctor.

    FEK the canadian citizens they are all racist feks anyway, long live the pisslamist invasion!

    Especially since all these “refugees” will receive far more free health care and benefits than working Canadians. Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg, since no one is factoring in the cost in law enforcement, damage and lives that will follow.

    have ISIS soldiers .. oops …refugees been vaccinated?
    TB , AIDS , cholera etc.?
    lots of cattawollering about not letting kids in school un-vaccinated

    Premier Strapon should force ISIS soldiers… oops , refugees to attend Gay Pride Parade… tolerance and all

    …easily 40,000 people here without a doctor…can I at least get kissed before I get f***ed over by these people?

      They won’t even spit on it.

    These doctors are obviously part of the islamophobia rampage going on across Canada. I’m sure every media outlet in the country will do an expose on their racism.

    It took me SEVEN years to get a new local family doctor when I moved. I had a good friend who worked for Community Health – her entire job was finding family doctors for new immigrants. When I asked her for help (I had been diagnosed in hospital emergency with some hereditary heart problems and regular care from a family physician became much more vital than the walk in clinics I had so far depended on) she tried – but her supervisor stopped her and gave her a reprimand. A born and bred Canadian was not the demographic they were mandated to assist.

      The liberals would say “you people have had a good run now,let some
      one else, from some were else, anywhere else in the world take your place”. It makes them feel all warm and fuzzy and adds bounce to their smug preening.

      If my neighbour invited strangers to move into my house and told me that I could expect delays of my expectations and to bear added costs. Punching the smug fucker in his big fat sneering yap would only be the star. I wish you luck in all endeavors.

    Wynne and Trudeau have no plan, all they have is platitudes.

    My usually fairly liberal sister-in-law was actually talking about this yesterday. She works at a doctors office and was saying the same thing, that there just isn’t room in the current health system for all these people. Even in the small-town communities area she is in she said they have a waiting list of around 8,200 people without a family doctor, and those are just the ones that bothered to register. I know of several people who have just given up on finding one.

      Have you pointed out to your fairly liberal sister-in-law that she is practising cognitive dissonance by being a liberal and complaining about a real world problem caused by liberals?
      Don’t worry, I know.
      I have a very liberal sister who I have practically disowned in the past few days.
      Passive aggressive cyber bullying of my daughter was the catalyst.
      It’s funny, you know.
      My daughter has been a lot more conscientious about schoolwork and nicer to me since I tore a strip off my sister.

        Not really, I tend to save most of my arguing for one of my other sister-in-laws who is a primary school teacher.

          Mine’s a librarian at a university.
          And she has a degree in textiles from the same institution.
          As well as an incomplete master in some studies thang.

    Wynne and her Liberals care spit about ordinary Ontarioans without a doctor.

  • Maxsteele

    We are so looking forward to 25,000 new terrorist welfare families here in Canada.

    John Tory says dentists should donate their services for Syrian migrants

    Like that’s going to happen..the only thing my dentist doesn’t charge for is the water when he says rinse and spit.

      You sure about that?

      I’m half English and there is a huge joke in there somewhere.

  • Ho Hum

    Politicians don’t care. They will just kick sick and needy Canadians to the back of the line. The fact is we bring in 25,000 sick and aging parents of landed immigrants each year. In the last two years of the Harper government they “set records” in the number of elderly immigrants (no doubt the Liberals will top this number). Most if not all of these sick and elderly immigrants will NEVER pay a dime of income tax in Canada but they will receive FREE HEALTHCARE within weeks of arrival. They are a HUGE part of the problem we have in our healthcare system. A problem that everyone wants to ignore.
