Province may scrap health units

The provincial government may be taking a “bigger is better” approach to its public health units.

An expert panel says the 36 health units should be scrapped and replaced with 14 much larger bureaucracies that follow the same geographic lines as the LHINS.

Under the plan, Brant County would join up with Haldimand, Norfolk, Hamilton, part of Halton Region and Niagara Region.

Opposition critics says giant health units would delay a timely response to a crisis like SARS.
