Leaked documents revealed this week that the Ford government is creating a new health "super agency" that will have the power to demand hospitals contract out services to private companies.

Advocates are warning the 'super agency' has, under the draft's terms, the power to demand effectively any part of Ontario's health service contract out to any one it mandates, with few limits.

"This draft is a bombshell," Ontario Health Coalition executive director Natalie Mehra told PressProgress.

"I've seen seven health ministers and all their legislation for two decades," Mehra said. "This one is an omnibus bill that would result in controversial amendments to dozens of other pieces of legislation. This one reaches further than any piece of legislation has before."
