New Book – March 2, 2021

It took the coronavirus pandemic to open our eyes to the deplorable state of so many of the nation”s long-term care homes: the inhumane conditions, overworked and underpaid staff, and lack of oversight. In this timely new book, esteemed health reporter André Picard reveals the full extent of the crisis in eldercare, and offers an urgently needed prescription to fix a broken system.

In Neglected No More, André Picard takes a hard look at how we came to embrace mass institutionalization, and lays out what can and must be done to improve the state of care for our elders, a highly vulnerable population with complex needs and little ability to advocate for themselves.

So, even with (sometimes absurd) extensions to fulfill requests, the Government of Canada is still missing 30% of its access to information deadlines.

Glad the government promised to prioritize transparency. Imagine how bad it would be if they hadn't. 🙃
