Ontarians swamped Queen's Park with requests to speak about the Ford government's sweeping proposals to revamp the health system.

Although the Progressive Conservatives allowed just a one-day window to sign up, more than 1,400 people asked to make oral submissions to a public hearing Monday and Tuesday. The Legislature's standing committee on social policy is reviewing the government's bill, called The People's Health Care Act.

Even the most controversial bills typically draw no more than a few hundred requests to present at a public hearing, according to veteran MPPs.
