I would like to express my sincere thanks to Ontario Premier Doug Ford for meeting with me during his visit to Essex County Tuesday, July 23, 2019.

Premier Ford and I had a positive discussion about the importance of the new $2 billion acute care hospital planned for our region. I’m pleased to say momentum is quickly building for this project, which will deliver tremendous benefits to our city.

I look forward to meeting with the Premier in Toronto to continue the discussion on how we can transform the delivery of health care for the benefit of everyone in our region.
