Poor healthcare in a city with a population of 625,000
Toronto's Punjabi Radio Khabarsar reports:
Brampton has a population of 625,000 but has only one hospital that is suffering from a shortage of beds. It has 608 beds, more than 200,000 emergency visits annually which is highest in GTA. Mississauga on the other hand has two hospitals and has 1,234 beds. Both cities are under one regional government but still there is a huge difference between the health care in both cities, said the host. Due to the crowded hallways in Brampton hospital, the former Liberal government announced $100 million for healthcare, however, the way this money was allocated was such a big joke with Brampton that it deserved to be recorded in history, said the host. With this money, while Mississauga got 100 new beds, Brampton was given only six new beds. Now Doug Ford's government has announced $90 million for health care and it is still need to be seen how Brampton going to benefit with this money. The host criticized politicians for not doing anything and urged people to ask their elected members for all these issues. He also criticized Brampton 2040 vision. (04/10/2018)
