ebola-regQUEEN'S PARK – The price of implementing the new Ebola protocols at Ontario's 155 hospitals may likely run into hundreds of thousands of dollars, warns Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker. For this reason, the MPP sought assurance from the Health Minister during today's Question period that the Ministry would fully reimburse the health care community for any costs associated with the new Ebola protocols.

"These new Ebola directives will come with costs that need to be absorbed by the existing capped funding folders," Walker said. "With the Liberal government's spiraling deficit and a healthcare budget that is already strapped to the max, I worry how the government will pay for Ebola emergency management in Ontario, without impacting existing services."

Minister Hoskins said he has tasked the health care community with tracking all these costs, and added that and they would be reimbursed at a "later date."
