Stop the Sell-Off and Privatization of Oak Bay Lodge and Mount Tolmie Hospital sign now

To the Honourable the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, in Legislature Assembled:
The petition of the undersigned, residents of the Province of British Columbia, states that:

We, the undersigned citizens of Greater Victoria, call on Ida Chong, MLA of Oak Bay-Gordon Head and all MLAs to advocate strenuously and publicly exercise their power, influence and constitutional responsibility to public health care to put a stop to the sell-off and privatization of publicly-provided, -funded and owned seniors care in our community, recognizing that connection to community, friends and family are vital to seniors health and wellbeing.

We further call on the Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) to cease and desist with plans to sell off Oak Bay Lodge and Mount Tolmie Hospital properties, recognizing that these lands are a sacred trust for future generations.

We further call on VIHA to cease and desist with plans to contract out seniors public health care, recognizing that privatization and corporatization has consistently led to a loss of complex residential care; a loss of public accountability, control and transparency, and increased costs to the taxpayer. We call on the Board of VIHA to advocate strenuously & publicly for seniors care.
