Bill 70: COVID-19 Related Measures Act was introduced in the legislature on April 21, 2021. If passed, this bill would ensure legal protection for health services facilities—including continuing care operators—facing lawsuits over illness or death due to exposure to COVID-19. Bill 70 will prevent families from being able to seek answers and hold care homes responsible for negligence of their loved ones.
Join Friends of Medicare on June 16, at 12pm for an important noon hour conversation about Bill 70 and the implications it holds for our continuing care system. We're excited to be joined by Melissa Miller, a personal injury lawyer focused on nursing home litigation, and founding member of Canadians 4 LTC Standards.
