Coalition Vote Draws Huge Support For Hospitals

A provincial health lobby group says it's found strong support to keep health services within Ontario hospitals.

The Ontario Health Coalition says it attracted more than 56-thousand people in a voluntary referendum held on the weekend who supported stopping private clinics from being set up to take over those services.

Despite its best efforts, the Coalition was unable to find individuals to man the vote in the Rainy River district.
