As the announcement of vax mandates and vax passports has being called in for Canada's provinces. In Ontario there is a 'dangerous' staffing shortage.
MSM claims its due because due to the lack of pay or overwork but why dont they mention many nurses probably have quit over due to the vax passports and mandates?

Hundreds of ER doctors implore Ontario to boost nurses' pay amid 'dangerous' staffing shortage




The letter, addressed to "fellow Ontarians," says emergency departments are once again in crisis, not because of a lack of ventilators or beds, but because of a severe shortage of nurses. Dr. Christopher Keefer, who works in emergency medicine, wrote the letter and described the response from his colleagues as "remarkable."

"Doctors are really seeing our nursing colleagues suffering," Keefer told CBC News.




They claim its due to lack of payment yet before the vax rollouts there was no such problems during the lockdowns when it comes to doctor, nursing shortages?




He pointed to the province providing four months of pandemic pay to front-line workers, including nurses, last year, which averaged $3,560 on top of existing wages. It also has invested over $52 million to recruit, retain and support health-care workers through the pandemic.

Something about this story doesn't add up.

The umbrella union that represents 76,000 nurses across the province is currently running a publicity campaign aimed at drawing attention to their conditions.

The union is demanding more nurses be hired and salaries increased.

"We're also advising the government to listen to our solutions," Roberto Bomba, the Union Executive Committee Member of the Fédération interprofessionnelle de la santé du Québec, (FIQ) told Global News.

This was for this hospital. Not over all the Hospitals at that time.


These are very stressful times for nurses working in the emergency department at the Lakeshore General Hospital.

I remember that story. This time its different.

Why was that hospital different and why was the union running a publicity campaign for just one hospital?
