Cornwall Ontario Nurse Christopher Cameron and his group are organizing another protest for Saturday May 26 in front of the Cornwall Community Hospital.
Mr. Cameron is also presenting his petition of over 3,000 signatures to MPP Jim McDonell at his Second Street Wednesday May 23, 2012 with the hopes of the MPP bringing it to Queen’s Park to initiate a Provincial investigation to the way that the Cornwall Community Hospital is employing nurses and front line staff based on Linguistic requirements instead of qualifications.
He has pointed out to competition that has seen nurses promoted or hired and then sent for training rather than nurses given language training.
A core of the protest also lies in the fact that the hospital checks for English qualifications on site, but forces French Language testing via an outside agency with what protesters have described as artificially high standards which are precluding many from advancement in their positions.
