As we approach Ontario Election Day of June 2, 2022, a good campaign question should be, “which political party will finally provide OHIP funded physiotherapy for our stroke survivors between ages 20 and 64 and eliminate age discrimination in Ontario stroke treatment?”
Healthcare should be based upon need and not outdated regulations at Queens Park. We need a public healthcare system based upon why young adults qualify for treatment as opposed to a system that looks for reasons to deny treatment on basis of age as is the current case for young adult stroke survivors.
Now is the time to be asking such questions.
The 2022 Ontario Election campaign has unofficially begun.
