Has Ontario Failed Long-Term Care?

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

The Ontario government has promised - more than once - that it would put an iron ring around seniors in this province. But as the government's own Long-term Care Commission established, residents and staff in that sector have been devastatingly affected during the COVID-19 emergency. To discuss how and why we got here, we invite Peter Shawn Taylor, senior features editor at C2C Journal; Vivian Stamatopoulos, long-term care researcher with Ontario Tech University and co-founder of the advocacy group Doctors for Justice in LTC; Donna Duncan, CEO of the Ontario Long Term Care Association; and Pat Armstrong, distinguished research professor of sociology at York University.
