3.         Ms. Horwath — Whereas one-third of working people have no dental coverage, and this gap is even larger for people who are freelancers, contractors, artists and in the gig economy;

Whereas two-thirds of retirees have no dental coverage, and people receiving Ontario Works have no standard dental coverage;

Whereas the Liberal government has left over 2 million people without coverage for prescription medications; and

Whereas every three minutes in Ontario, someone goes to an emergency room or doctor’s office for a dental problem, and nearly a quarter of people reported they or someone in their household didn’t take their medication because of costs;

Therefore the Legislative Assembly calls on the government to ensure all Ontarians, regardless of age, income, source of income, or where they live, can access dental care and drug coverage.

Addressed to the Premier. Filed March 21, 2018.
