A poll released by CUPE Ontario says the decision by the provincial government earlier this year to create a super health agency called Ontario Health is not sitting well with residents in Nipissing and Sault Ste Marie.

76 % of those who completed the poll don’t think that merging hospitals, long-term care and other providers will end hallway health care at their facility.

CUPE’s hospital sector is holding their annual convention in North Bay this week and they’ll be holding a rally on Wednesday at noon outside MPP Vic Fedeli’s constituency office.

Later at 4:30 in the afternoon the North Bay And District Labour Council is holding a Stand United Rally against cuts.
