My name is (FULL NAME) and I am a resident of (ELECTORAL DISTRICT). I’m writing today to you to ask you to support a fair deal for health care for Brampton.
From overcrowding and long wait times, to hallway medicine, Brampton is chronically underfunded and Brampton City Council unanimously declared a City-wide health care emergency on January 22, 2020.
I am a supporter of the Fair Deal for Brampton campaign, and the two requests that the health care emergency asks of the Province of Ontario is to:
- Provide urgent frontline health care funding to Brampton Civic Hospital and Peel Memorial Centre to ensure they are operating with full staffing and resources to provide safe, quality patient care
- Ensure a fully operational Emergency Department and adequate inpatient services and additional hospital beds – to match the provincial average per capita – at the Phase II development of the Peel Memorial Centre
We also need a third health care facility in Brampton. I am encouraged by the Premier’s recent comments about the need for further health care investments in Ontario and Peel Region, but we need our local MPPs to make sure Brampton gets a fair deal.
Government representatives at all levels are elected to support the priorities of their constituents. Improving health care in our community is a top priority for residents in (ELECTORAL DISTRICT), and I hope that you will be willing to take a stand to advocate for your constituents on this important issue.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to my concerns.
