  • Toronto Public Health

Toronto Board of Health Chair Joe Cressy said people across the province from all political viewpoints have objected to the Ford government's plan to cut provincial funding to municipal public health units.

The former ministers, including six Liberals, three New Democrats and one Progressive Conservative who served for five years under premier Bill Davis implored Elliott in their open letter to stop what they call "drastic" cuts.

"Over the past month, notices issued by your government have indicated cuts to Toronto Public Health, child care, paramedics, and our share of the provincial gas tax dedicated to TTC upkeep and fix", his letter to Ford said.

In the letter, the former ministers stress the importance of properly funding public health as a means to prevent disease outbreaks, maintain clean water, vaccinate Ontario's children, and provide school breakfast programs to children in need.

Dr. Helena Jaczek, a former Ontario Liberal health minister and municipal medical officer of health, said the funding cut jeopardizes the important work public health does ensuring a healthy population.

Ontario's government is waiting for a decision after fighting the tax in court. They also noted that the cuts are coming long after municipalities, which operate on calendar and not fiscal years, have passed their budgets.

Ontario's public health units co-ordinate services including vaccination programs, infectious disease outbreak investigations, and restaurant inspections. "Funding must be restored". Health has been seen as a nonpartisan issue - something we all support. "This attack on public health has prompted us to break our silence", the open letter states.

"Traditionally, ministers of health have avoided commenting on the policies of their successors", they write in the letter.

Premier Doug Ford said Toronto, and other municipalities, can find savings by cutting waste from their books. We had to go through line by line and find those savings.

Elliott said concern about the amalgamations is premature, as the province will discuss proposed new boundaries with municipalities and public health units through technical working groups.

"While there may be 10 ministers who have signed this letter I can tell you that there are more who also oppose these cuts but are in positions where they are not able to publicly sign letters", he said.
