Hospital parking fee plan not in the budget
Health Minister maintains its a priority for the province

The Liberal budget doesn't include a plan to cap hospital parking fees - a front and centre plank to their election platform.

The Health Minister reveals it's a priority for his ministry. However, Eric Hoskins says they want to have consultations with the public, hospitals and other stakeholders.

But Tory Health Critic Christine Elliott wants to see action on the issue now. She says families should have to have a financial hardship when a loved one is sick, pointing to personal experience when one of her sons needed hospital care.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath says the Liberals will have to explain to Ontarians why this isn't a budget priority for them now that they have a majority.

During the election, the Liberals vowed to look into capping hospital parking fees for those who have to visit the facilities frequently because either they or loved ones were sick.
