June 2, 2014 – Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is promising access to 24/7 primary health care by 2018 if the Liberals are re-elected.

Wynne says her pledge is in stark contrast to the proposed “reckless'" cuts of 100,000 public-sector jobs announced by Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak.

She says those cuts "will have a significant impact" on health-care providers and services.

The Liberals say 28 hospitals were shuttered under the previous Tory government.

They
also say their guarantee that everyone will be able to reach a family
doctor or nurse practitioner at any time would cost less than $20
million.

According to the Liberals, 93 per cent of people in Ontario currently have access to primary care.
