LEVY: When the going gets tough, our leaders repeat the same mistakes


I won’t spend much time reiterating the mistakes made that cost more than 3,700-plus seniors their lives just in long-term care homes alone. That came out loud and clear when long-term care minister Merrilee Fullerton testified before the Long-Term Commission at the end of February. The iron ring Ford promised to put around LTC homes never happened. The second wave was even worse. I know. I lost my dad during that time. But his government had time to ram through Bill 218, an outrageous piece of legislation that protects negligent LTC homes in lawsuits brought by families who lost loved ones during the first and second waves. You would have thought nearly 4,000 deaths would have taught our provincial leaders something. But the fiascos continue.
