NDP motion to act on family doctor shortage in Kingston voted down by Conservatives, not one Liberal votes in support

Published on November 19, 2020

QUEEN’S PARK – NDP MPP for Kingston and the Islands Ian Arthur said Thursday he’s shocked and disappointed that the Conservative government voted down his motion in support of a strategy to bring more family doctors to Kingston, and that not one Liberal showed up to support Kingston, either.

In 2015, the Liberals took Kingston off the list of communities that receive extra help recruiting and retaining doctors, and now Doug Ford is keeping the community off that list. Arthur's motion would have changed that.
