Port Colborne considers legal challenge of Ontario hospital emergency room closure.

The City of Port Colborne passed a motion Monday night to seek legal advice on legal actions it might take  regarding the shutdown of the local hospital's emergency room, the Tribune reports.

"We have made the move to seek that legal advice and take the appropriate steps," said Mayor Vance Badawey.  Barbara Butters, a councillor for Ward 4 in Port Colbourne was even franker:  "Do whatever it takes to make sure these charges get laid because there's no way those SOBs should be getting away with this," Butters said as citizens cheered from the public gallery.

 Municipalities are playing are bigger role defending local hospital services. Good on them!
