Endorsing a 10,000 signature Petition, or Endorsing a Widely Unpopular Contract?

While in opposition the NDP supported PPHC in our fight to stop the privatization of Long-Term Care on the Sunshine Coast, and the closure of Totem and Shorncliffe care facilities.  This photo shows Illya Knauff, one of our coalition members and Mr. Horgan while he leader of the Opposition. He has just signed our petition, joining 10,000 other citizens opposed to the deal between Vancouver Coastal Health and Trellis Inc. We thought when the government changed and the NDP came to power, that they would at the very least take time to listen to our community before endorsing the wildly unpopular contract between VCH and Trellis.
