One step forward...

The provincial government has just coughed up an extra $14 million for the Niagara Health System (a multi-site hospital) for the 2009-10 fiscal year, i.e. a year which will end in just over a month (March 31). Apparently, the money will be rolled into the hospital's base funding.

This following solid community campaigns against cutbacks and closures of emergency rooms (reaching a terrible culmination when a young victim died while being driven to a more distant emergency room).

This also follows the recent successful campaign to get the government to keep the Grace hospital in Toronto going. -- Doug
