Halton Hills to province: Fix the doctor shortage
Independent & Free Press (Georgetown, ON), 17 Jan 2007, p. 4

Full Text

Halton Hills council is calling for the Ontario government to take immediate action to resolve the doctor shortage in the province. At a recent meeting, council endorsed that resolution that originally came from the Township of Madawaska Valley council. That council decided to adopt the resolution saying the doctor shortage was created by the Province because cuts to medical admissions resulted from provincial funding cuts to medical schools. It said the shortage has resulted in greater competition by medical boards to secure the lower number of graduates, and those boards are asking municipalities to fund the "hideous" practice of "free agency buying of medical personnel." That council also said it's becoming more and more difficult to attract doctors to rural areas
