Global National: Aug. 4, 2022 | Ontario nurses union calls on governments to fix crisis in hospitals

by News Update

On this episode of Global National: The Ontario Nurses’ Association is demanding more help from all levels of government across Canada, as the crisis in the country’s understaffed hospitals deepens. Seán O’Shea reports on the difficult search for solutions.

Canada is sending military members to the United Kingdom, where they will help teach Ukrainian civilians to fight Russian forces. As Mercedes Stephenson explains, there’s another much more secretive mission Canadians are involved in on the ground in Ukraine.

And with a shortage of supplies and staff, one bombed-out hospital in Ukraine’s northern Kharkiv region is desperately trying to keep going as Russia’s war rages on. Crystal Goomansingh has a first-hand look at what’s left of the facility and the danger medical teams must endure to treat patients.

Tensions keep rising in Asia, as China conducts its largest military drills yet around Taiwan, seemingly in response to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the small nation that China regards as its own. Redmond Shannon reports on the escalation, including a slew of new ballistic missile launches.

Plus, right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been found liable for defamation for repeatedly calling the Sandy Hook school massacre a hoax, while labelling victims’ families as “crisis actors.” A Texas jury has decided Jones must pay US$4 million in compensatory damages to Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose son Jesse Lewis was among the 26 people killed in the December 2012 in Newtown, Conn. Jackson Proskow looks at the proceedings and why it’s just the start of the Infowars host’s legal problems.

And a 62-year-old French sailor has been rescued off the coast of Spain, after his racing boat capsized in the Atlantic Ocean, where he was trapped for 16 hours. Ross Lord reports on the dangerous and difficult rescue operation and how the man managed to endure the frigid waters for that long.

Jeremiah 7:31-34 ESV —
31 And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, nor did it come into my mind. 32 Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when it will no more be called Topheth, or the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter; for they will bury in Topheth, because there is no room elsewhere. 33 And the dead bodies of this people will be food for the birds of the air, and for the beasts of the earth, and none will frighten them away. 34 And I will silence in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, for the land shall become a waste.

Isn't that funny eh, this whole time in order to fight the staffing shortage at hospitals, funding is desperately needed to give an offer proper wages. But today Christia Freeland said her answer to the trucking industries cries for workers is to import cheap foreign labor instead of brining back the regulations that used to give Fair wages and rates to those in the trucking industry. Tell me why is it that there's still doctors from other countries with degrees not getting hired, but we're so quick to throw uneducated foreigners into a semi. Nurses see their own bed and families more than a truck driver ever will. Let's talk about PTSD and the real reason why there's a trucker shortage, and why those who dreamed of being truck drivers are now fleeing the job. Being a truck driver used to hold the same level of respect as a doctor or a airline pilot.

Alberta is profiteering off of the rest of canadians from their toxic oil. We need to tax that province more with some type of windfall tax so that the rest of the country can support their health care systems post covid. Alberta is a naturally greed province, if we are impacted by their pollution they should be made to pay a lot more in transfer payments from oil revenues

There are limited staff….
Government response: Do nothing for years.

Then the mandates ran more out the door. Good luck finding nurses. They are happy to not be stressed out any more.

Why is the Union whining now. They did nothing to help the fired nurses.

N.D West August 5, 2022 - 7:56 AM

In the 19th Century, early 20th a person could become a nurse by learning on the job. Nowadays?! They've wanted stellar grades, a whole damned list of volunteer work, etc. So, too bad. Not everyone is a book learner and there's many who'd be excellent nurses but aren't given a chance. And as for calculating doses, you learn the blasted formula and keep reusing it.

Remember when they gave nursing student incentives? They need to cut the top heavy staff. Stop over working nurses. Give them daycare options. Some nurses have no parking. NEVER mandate a vaccine. That's a good start.

Kevin Better August 5, 2022 - 8:03 AM

If you want to control forest fires. Why are the indigenous not in charge of this? They were stewarts long before. God help us.

Promoted to Minister of Heritage, demoted to cultural affairs, then promoted to Minister of Economics & Official Languages, then to Minister of Foreign Affairs, Joly still doesn't know the difference between a bluff & a fold in poker.

Henri Lamarche August 5, 2022 - 8:23 AM

Healthcare, such as it was, cannot be sustainable. The requirements to have hundreds of thousands of 'workers' to fill vacancies is ludicrous. No one. I mean nobody wants to work in medicine or health. It's a dead end road, no pun.

H.B. August 5, 2022 - 8:26 AM

Did the health minister actually say she's learning on the job? This is what happens when you vote in an incompetent buffoon as premiere. Ontario voted for this conservative clown and his unqualified ministers. You get what what you vote for.

How is it possible that zero levels of government can see that a national scheme of fully-funded & fast-tracked education is needed to secure a domestic healthcare workforce starting immediately.
Such programs should have been implement as soon as the pandemic presented itself, now the crisis is completely out of control. Neoliberal technocratic approaches are not going to resolve this. People have already died needlessly

Healthcare staffing is a easy fix, bring back the ones they let go. Canada has no business doing anything in or with Ukraine.

I’m sorry but that’s not the meaning of calling someone’s bluff. That entire statement is now just damage control.
