Liberals added 35,000 seniors to waitlist while building just 611 LTC beds

The last time the Liberals were in government, they put 35,000 more seniors on the waitlist for long-term care while adding just 611 beds, according to the Financial Accountability Office.

For-profit long-term care cost lives during the pandemic. Instead of fixing the problem, the Conservatives are rewarding some of the worst offenders with more contracts.

The NDP will build a new, public and non-profit home and long-term care system. The plan adds 50,000 new public beds, with $750 million/year in capital funding and $3.8 billion over the next three years to fix staffing and services.
