Grey-Bruce hospitals parking sign now

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario; and to the Counties of Grey and Bruce,

Whereas health care in Ontario is and must remain a publicly-funded, publicly-run service in all our communities,

And whereas Grey-Bruce health services is attempting to fund its services through parking fees levied by municipalities in Meaford, Markdale and Southampton, and such fees already exist in Owen Sound and Wiarton, where the hospital wants to raise them;

And whereas many patients from Owen Sound and rural areas have no choice but to arrive at hospital by car, since public transit is extremely limited where it even exists;

And whereas unionized staff, who would be forced to pay parking fees as well, have legally-binding collective agreements that deal with the issue of parking costs;

And whereas, it is offensive to ask elderly people, people in emergency situations, or people in situations of bereavement, to reach into their wallets for cash in order to access parking facilities at the hospital;

We the undersigned, petition the Counties of Grey and Bruce; the various constituent municipalities; Bill Murdoch, MPP; and the Legislative Assembly as follows:

That Grey-Bruce Health Services refrain from attempting to fund the health care system through parking fees, and further that the hospitals revisit the system of fee-parking where it currently exists.

    Town Southampton You should seriously consider the consequences of this intention before you implement such a ridiculous value to your cost structure. Use some common sense. Review your options, explore new options, and find another way!

    Town Owen Sound,Ontario Owen Sound is made up mainly of seniors and people on fixed incomes. It is not reasonable to expect them to pay parking fees when there are other ways to obtain monies.

    Town Orangeville I understand about keeping costs down, but maybe they could implement a computer system that issues passes and the visitor can swipe it and if they have to return they swipe it to open the gates and then to pay inside they swipe the pass

    Town Walkerton I am a cancer patient who often uses the Owen Sound Hospital. It is difficult enough to pay for the added costs of having cancer without having to pay even more for parking.

    Town Bognor There have been too many cutbacks on the services available as it is, without nailing people for parking too. It's bad enough there are parking rates to start with, never mind increasing them!!! RUBBISH ! !
