After promising to establish national standards for long-term care in response to the tragic outcomes of COVID-19, the federal Liberal government has now washed its hands of that promise to voters. It’s instead passing the buck to a toothless accreditation industry to create updated standards.

This Band-Aid solution is voluntary, non-enforceable, and unregulated; it has also
not prevented COVID deaths. This is not good government. I call it "government by promising everything" and leads to no solution, but does lead to keeping their
government in power; that’s the Red playbook.
This is not what experts, advocates, and many residents, staff, and family members of those in care homes have long been asking for. For families and long-term care residents and workers, we should be determined to put an end to companies putting profits before patients. Or at least try.
