CFN – What started out as a simple letter to the editor is now picking up steam. Dr. Dany Tombler’s letter to the editor regarding the issue of the Cornwall Community Hospital’s Bilingual Nurse and Staff hiring policy has kindled a fire in the community and area.
South Stormont’s mayor, Bryan McGillis, and council passed a motion to with hold funds to the hospital fund raising efforts until this issue is dealt with.
They also passed on this motion to the United Counties who rebuffed it and the debate continues at Cornwall Ontario City Council Monday night, February 27th.
A daily protest and petition that started with only one nurse, Christopher Cameron, has led to more support and a major demonstration is being called for the community for Saturday March 3rd in front of the McConnnell street location from 1-3 PM.
Cornwall politicians have been in the Witness protection program so far in this debate. Jim McDonell, the MPP for this region has also waffled and fuddled on taking a position even though his mayor Brother has clearly sided with South Stormont.
The group has a Facebook page as well for the event. LINK
It is time to draw together as a group to abolish unfair hiring practices,this is your last chance to make a big difference.The most qualified person should be the person chosen for a full time job NOT based on what lanquage you can speak….so if your tired of sitting in the back of the buss…Come & together we can evoke change!!!
