We've all had to go to the hospital now and again. Maybe to go to the ER or maybe to visit a sick family member. Parking rates there can be astronomical.
The Liberals are proposing to give those who have to visit often a break. They included a promise in their newly-release platform to cap or fully cut hospital parking fees for people who make frequent visits to the hospital - either because they're sick themselves or family members are.
At Sunnybrook hospital, a day pass costs $26. There are weekly passes available for $65.
John has been visiting his mom who has a heart condition for over a month and a half. He says even with the weekly rate, he's paid over $300 in parking alone.
Others, come twice a week for appointments, which wouldn't require getting more than a day pass.
When asked, Tory leader Tim Hudak wouldn't say what he would do. He says the Liberals encouraged high parking rates so hospitals could make money.
The NDP have yet to respond to a request for comment.
