Decision to cut midwifery funding shortsighted

Green Party of Ontario leader and Guelph MPP, Mike Schreiner, released the following statement in response to government cuts to the College of Midwives of Ontario:

“It is a short-sighted and reactionary decision for the Ford government to cut funding for the College of Midwives of Ontario. The long-term financial costs and reduced health care services will far outweigh any ‘savings’ the government hopes to gain.

This decision is wrong, just wrong.”
