January 2013 Update
Since our last post, there have been some new developments. Along with Markham, the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville and the City of Oshawa have all passed resolutions asking the Province to reduce and control parking charges at Ontario Hospitals.
CTV ran a news report on Friday, December 28th regarding the issue. They referred to Oshawa councilor Doug Sanders and his efforts to successfully get the Oshawa Council to pass a resolution to be forwarded to the Provincial Government. In that report, the charges at various hospitals were referred to. For those with Internet access you may watch the clip at CTVNews.com.
Our small group continues to meet and work towards getting the word out. For all that follow this issue, your support is appreciated. At present, we do not actively work with Facebook or Twitter, so if you would like to expand our audience using these forms of social media we would appreciate it.
There has been some recognition of our cause by members of the opposition parties in the Provincial Government. For this we appreciate their involvement. We are still working to encourage the party in power to respond to the issue in a way that doesn’t just state the status quo.
We’ll keep you informed.
